Exploring how the music of New Orleans reflects the culture of the city; and how music has the power to change lives. In many ways, the story of New Orleans is the story of America – a country founded by people who wanted freedom, and wanted to escape social injustice and cultural biases. The music of New Orleans became not only a celebration of life but also, at times, an expression of a want, need, and desire for freedom.
We hope to welcome Director Michael Murphy for a Q&A with the audience.
