One Night with Bille and Ella

September 16

For its Historical Happy Hour series this month, the West Baton Rouge Museum is stepping back in time to stage an unforgettable blues concert—featuring some of the twentieth century’s most iconic vocalists, Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald.

Starring performers from the National WWII Museum’s BB’s Stage Door Canteen, the show, held in the West Baton Rouge Museum Brick Gallery, will feature classics like “Give Me the Simple Life,” and “God Bless the Child,” along with fun, nostalgic banter and jokes. Visitors can also take part in curator-led tours of the museum’s new exhibition, Billie Holiday at Sugar Hill : Photographs by Jerry Dantzic. 6 pm–8 pm. Free. westbatonrougemuseum.org.
