Arts patron Amy Katzman: Doing the thing she loves to the absolute max

Amy Katsman has attended 44 New Orleans Jazz Fests. Disappointed that it was COVID-cancelled in 2021, she celebrated with a friend on her front porch by listening to WWOZ’s Jazz Fest highlights online while wearing some of her old festival passes.

When my husband and I go to concerts or any performance, of course we look around for anyone we know. With amazing regularity, we spot a woman with a familiar head of long gray-red hair, wearing colorful glasses and a flowy dress, using a cane or maybe a rolling walker. Yep, there’s Amy, we’ve said for years, always with amused pleasure at her sheer omnipresence at the cultural events of the city.

Culture FIX: June 8-14

This week’s events tend to explore the edges, the avant-garde, things created just outside the spectrum, touching on civil rights, gender and sexual identity, the environment and the war in Ukraine.
