  • “Trad Fridays”: Acura is broadening its relation with the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival by sponsoring local arts education. Acura presents “Trad Fridays” at the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts. This program celebrates teaching traditional brass-band music to music students.

  • House of Blues silent auction: The Trombone Shorty Foundation is hosting a silent auction at the House of Blues to help raise funds for their cause. Acura will be donating Acura VIP Packages to be auctioned off.

The cherry on top? Acura will present the full model lineup and more in the Acura Product Experience Tent. This includes the MDX, RDX and a photo booth featuring the NSX.
