On Wednesday, Feb. 19, The Historic New Orleans Collection and the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra will present “Postcards from Paris,” the eighth installment of Musical Louisiana: America’s Cultural Heritage. The popular series examines different aspects of the state’s contributions to classical music with a free concert, as well as award-winning educational programming. The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation is once again supporting live streaming of the concert.

Selections for this year’s concert will explore the rich cultural and musical connections between France and Louisiana, including compositions by Ernest Guiraud, Frédéric Chopin and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. In addition, a trio featuring Dr. Michael White, renowned jazz musician and instructor at Xavier University of Louisiana, will perform his arrangement of Sidney Bechet’s “Petit Fleur,” and the orchestra will close the concert with George Gershwin’s “An American in Paris.” Three rising stars from the prestigious Paris Conservatory will be guest soloists, and Nicholas Carter, resident conductor of the Hamburg State Opera, will direct.

This project is sponsored in part by the Maison Dupuy. Live Internet streaming of this concert on www.LPOmusic.com is supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation in partnership with Louisiana State University’s College of Music and Dramatic Arts.
