About the Performance Hall

The Ellis Marsalis Center for Music performance hall is yet another example of our commitment to excellence. Audiences at our concert series enjoy a true listening room, with acoustics designed by world-renowned sound engineer Rick Talaske.

Each state-of-the-art feature was intentionally selected to create the highest sound quality, from the dimensions to the materials to the amplification system. Our advanced lighting creates a stunning ambient experience for performers and audiences alike.

Unlike many venues in New Orleans, our performance hall is exclusively dedicated to the enjoyment of music in an acoustically pristine environment. We curate an incredible lineup of local legends and emerging New Orleans artists to inspire audiences, and our ticket prices are the best deal in town. Mark your calendar for our next concert, and give your ears a treat!
