Musicale 2019 will be held on Sunday, October 20th, from noon to 3pm at the Charleston in Downtown Lake Charles.  We’re excited to share that local jazz artist  Jeremy “JB Saax” Benoit will be providing entertainment for the event along with a few exciting changes.


Jazz & Mimosas will be the focus for this year’s event.  We’re looking forward to a fabulous afternoon.  Our artist will share the lovely sounds of contemporary jazz.  The Charleston venue will provide a variety of brunch options as well as an impressive mimosa bar. 


Tickets are currently available for Musicale 2019.  Visit our website or Facebook page to purchase tickets.  For more information about the upcoming event or the services provided by the Literacy Council, call  Angelia Jones at 337-494-7000.
