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.

Yep, there’s Amy, we’ve said for years, always with amused pleasure at her sheer omnipresence at the cultural events of the city.
