Thursday, the Night Train rolled down Frenchmen, but this year’s Birdfoot Festival is just picking up steam. This evening, May 24, New Orleans’ premier chamber music festival continues its journey to the heart of the CBD for a night of French opulence, music in microcosm, and a work heralding the end of time.

Birdfoot Festival's First Fauré is Tonight


The Louisiana Philharmonic may be done for the summer, but there's still classical music to be absorbed in New Orleans. The inaugural Birdfoot Chamber Music Festival launches tonight with a concert at the Old U.S. Mint. The festival offers a chance to see intimate pieces in a shifting scene of intimate settings - and a chance to enjoy a drink while listening. A wide variety of musicians, both from all over the U.S. and - through a mentoring program - from local schools, will play at the trio of performances.
