Since their arrival in New Orleans in 1727, the Sisters of St. Ursula have taught and cared for the inhabitants of that most European of American cities without ceasing. A music manuscript in their library remains the only surviving example of music from Louisiana’s colonial period, and is a rare example of French baroque music from our nation’s past. This intimate, candle-lit evening of music will consist of selections from the Manuscrit des Ursulines de la Nouvelle-Orléans, interspersed with readings from the nuns’ diaries and other colonial-era documents.

As always there will be $5 student tickets available at the door, and K-12 students are free with parent/guardian admission.

A limited number of pay-as-you-can tickets are available at the door at both programs; patrons are asked simply to simply what they can afford, with no questions asked and no judgment passed. We believe the arts are our collective cultural heritage and should be available to all regardless of financial means.

Please feel free to join us 30 minutes before the show for an informal talk by the artistic director about the program.
