WHY:             The Historic New Orleans Collection's spring Concerts in the Courtyard series continues Friday, May 16, with Latin band Viváz. This month's event is presented in conjunction with the release of THNOC's latest book "Creole World: Photographs of New Orleans and the Latin Caribbean Sphere."

Viváz-which combines Latin music, jazz elements and Brazilian and Caribbean sounds with roots of Flamenco flair-comprises musicians from Latin American and the U.S. Formed in New Orleans in 2001, Viváz is centered upon a nimble nylon-string guitar, a double three-stringed Cuban guitar (called a "tres") and accomplished vocals, all led by founder, leader and Bolivia-native Javier Gutierrez. Donald Jarquin (conga and vocals), Rik Fletcher (piano), Abdel Jarquin (cajon, percussion and vocals) and Tommy Sciple (upright bass) will also perform.

"Creole World: Photographs of New Orleans and the Latin Caribbean Sphere" (THNOC 2014) is a new exhibition and book by renowned author and photographer Richard Sexton exploring the connections between Haiti, Colombia, Argentina, Cuba and Ecuador back home to New Orleans. Over the course of 38 years, Sexton traveled across Latin America capturing the architectural and urban similarities among these culturally rich locales. Sexton will sign copies of the book, which includes essays by Creole-architecture scholar Jay D. Edwards and photography historian John H. Lawrence, from 5:30 until 7 p.m.

All concerts this season are sponsored by Associated Office Systems. White wine from Republic National Distributing Co. and beer from NOLA Brewing Co. will be available at each event.

The Historic New Orleans Collection is proud to present its seventh season of Concerts in the Courtyard. Since 2008, these events have offered a fun, casual way to kick off the weekend. Each show features live outdoor performances by Louisiana musicians, refreshments and extended hours to visit the shop and the first-floor galleries.

Mark your calendars for the final spring Concerts in the Courtyard event:

 

Admission to Concerts in the Courtyard is $10 for the public, free for members of The Collection and includes three complimentary beverages. Memberships begin at $35 and are valid for one year. Capacity is limited and the event is designed for a standing audience. Outside chairs, food and beverages are not permitted on the premises.
