    "Postcards from Paris" is the eighth installment of Musical Louisiana: America's Cultural Heritage, an annual series presented by The Historic New Orleans Collection and the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra. Dedicated to the study of Louisiana's contributions to the world of classical music, the award-winning program also provides online educational materials to fourth and eighth-grade public and private school teachers throughout Louisiana.

    Since the program's inception, Musical Louisiana has garnered both local and national recognition. The 2008 presentation, "Music of the Mississippi," won the Big Easy Award for Arts Education; "Made in Louisiana" (2009) received an Access to Artistic Excellence grant from the National Endowment for the Arts; "Identity, History, Legacy: La Société Philharmonique" (2011)received an American Masterpieces: Three Centuries of Artistic Genius grant from the National Endowment for the Arts; and "Envisioning Louisiana" (2013) won a $20,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts to support its educational component. This year's concert, "Postcards from Paris," celebrates the rich cultural and musical connections between France and Louisiana. In addition, three students from the prestigious Conservatoire national supérieur de musique et de danse de Paris, founded in 1795, will travel from France to perform solos, continuing the centuries-old tradition of musical exchange between the nations.

    Live internet streaming of this concert on LPOmusic.com is supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation in collaboration with the Louisiana State University College of Music and Dramatic Arts.

    "Postcards from Paris" is presented in collaboration with the Conservatoire national supérieur de musique et de danse de Paris and students Julia Knecht, Ryutaro Suzuki, and Thomas Kientz; Rémy Pflimlin, President; and Bruno Mantovani, director. A vital artistic and educational leader both nationally and internationally, the Paris Conservatoire offers professional training to musicians, dancers, and sound engineers. During its two-hundred-year history it has been home to Berlioz, Debussy, Messiaen, and Boulez, to name a few. Show less
