In January of 2012, Delfeayo Marsalis and his Uptown Music Theatre competed for the first time in the National Junior Theatrical Festival in Atlanta, and they won their division. Now, they've been invited back and they've been asked to perform something very special.
Delfeayo Marsalis joins the Eyewitness Morning News to talk about the National Junior Theatrical Festival competition, and the Uptown Music Theatre's annual benefit concert, The Sweet Sound of Music.
You can help the Uptown Music Theatre compete in the National Junior Theatrics Festival, by buying a ticket to this year's The Sweet Sound of Music benefit, with great musicians like the Iguanas, The Hot 8 Brass Band, Robin Barnes, and of course, Delfeayo Marsalis.
It's Sunday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Xavier University Ballroom, and tickets are just $35.
