Becoming American: The Musical Journey At St. Louis Cathedral In New Orleans

The Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra and the Historic New Orleans Collection announce the sixth annual “Musical Louisiana: America’s Cultural Heritage”. This is a free concert, open to the public designed to draw attention to Louisiana’s contribution to classical music.

Each year the series examines the musical arts as well as educational opportunities available to new generations. Wednesday’s concert selection will trace the evolution of regional music tastes from the early 19th century to the modern age. Since New Orleans has a natural affinity for European masters such as Beethoven and Bellini mixed with the Caribbean and African styles native to Cajun country, the birth of Jazz will be celebrated with a uniquely southern flare. For the first time, a grant funded by the Mellon Foundation will allow the performance to be live streamed making the event available to the widest audience ever.

This charitable project is sponsored in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, Entergy and Muriel’s Jackson Square.

WHEN: Wednesday, January 25 at 7:30 p.m.

St. Louis Cathedral
