WHAT: Francisco Boulingy Lecture

"The Fountains of Bimini" presented by La Folía

WHY: The Spanish baroque ensemble La Folía was founded in 1977 in Madrid with the aim of interpreting the musical repertoire of the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries using period instruments. The group brings its talents to New Orleans for a one-night-only concert of early works hearkening back to the age of European discovery, exploration and colonization of North America.

The program, which will take place on Thursday, July 11, at 6:30 p.m. at THNOC's Williams Research Center, 410 Chartres St., is open to the public. Seating is limited; for reservations call (504) 523-4662 or email wrc@hnoc.org.

Established by the Bouligny Foundation, the Bouligny Lecture Series examines Louisiana under Spanish rule and honors Francisco Bouligny, an important military and political figure in Spanish Louisiana. This year's event is presented by THNOC and Acción Cultual Española with support from the Consulate General of Spain - Houston, Gobierno de España and Spain: Arts & Culture.
