Cleary, Toussaint Go Through the Looking Glass at THNOC


By Ashley Larsen

In the midst of the 300+ emerging and established artists being showcased in P3+, Xiao Xiao’s exhibition truly stands out as both awe inspiring and as a bit of a mind boggler. Xiao Xiao (pronounced Sh-ih-ow, Sh-ih-ow) is both an artist and a technologist. In her most recent work, she fuses both skills with her NOLA upbringing to create a stirring homage to the piano music of the Crescent City.

Coffee Talk Lasts All Day Sat. at HNOC


by Elizabeth Davas

Seattle and Portland may have cornered the market on coffee in modern America, but New Orleans has a long standing relationship with its cup of joe. All of this and more will be discussed at the New Orleans Historic Collection’s third annual culinary symposium, “From Dancing Goats to Green Mermaids: Coffee and New Orleans." The all-day brew ha-ha is set to be held Saturday.


LPO, Guests Sound Off on French Connections at Cathedral Concert


Along with being the seat of the local Catholic Church, St. Louis Cathedral serves as one of New Orleans' prime connections to the city's origins. Like much of the city's development, the church building has gone through several phases over time, but still maintains its connection to the French through both name and central place in the city. As such, the Cathedral offers an ideal location for the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra and Historic New Orleans Collection to present a program exploring the state's musical connections to France.
