Music Benefit Concert

Turn it UP! Music Benefit Concert

The Turn It UP! Music Benefit Concert focuses on the New Orleans community’s love of music. Since 2022, Turn It UP! has raised over $50,000 to provide music programming for Upturn Arts’ young artists and educate them about New Orleans’ music heritage and culture. The monies raised allow us to purchase instruments, hire working musicians as teaching artists, and pay guest artists such as Big Freedia, David Shaw, and Mardi Gras Indians to share their craft with our young artists.

Headliners for our previous events included DJ Logic, George Porter Jr., Terrence Houston, and Big Sam. During the evening, guests can bid on our silent and live auctions, hit our punch wall for unique gifts, and experience outstanding performances from our headliners and house band, Upturn Funk.
