THIBODAUX, La. — Talented jazz musician and Nicholls alum George Bell will host a concert at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 18, in the Mary and Al Danos Theater.
A Thibodaux native who spent three decades working in healthcare, Bell has emerged as a coveted trumpeter in Louisiana over the past decade. He started out playing a few shows and now George Bell & Friends play multiple times across the state each year.
While an administrator at Baton Rouge General – Mid City, Bell would bring his trumpet to the hospital and play for patients to help take their minds off their ailments. He combined his passion for music and his helping others by leading the Arts in Medicine program, which incorporated painting, drawing, crafts and music into the healing process.
George Bell & Friends is an evolving lineup that includes Bell and professional Louisiana musicians.
Tickets cost $35 for the general public, $5 for students and can be purchased by calling 448-4600.
