Abita Springs Busker Festival

Busking is the practice of performing in public places for gratuities. The buskers invited to our event are, for the most part, jazz and roots musicians who often perform on the streets of the French Quarter.

The clarinet glissando from Rhapsody in Blue sounds INCREDIBLE in four-part harmony

classicfm.com We thought the glissando from George Gershwin’s ‘Rhapsody in Blue’ couldn’t get any more epic – but then, we heard it in four-part harmony. Have a listen to this.
