The Walla Walla Choral Society’s 2019-2020 concert season begins with an encore performance of Music of New Orleans at Gesa Power House Theatre on Sunday, September 8 at 3:00 p.m.
“We had so many attendees, and those who did not attend due to weather, request another plateful of this wonderful music,” says Artistic Director Gary Hemenway. “So, we are offering an encore performance of the Music of New Orleans. New Orleans is the womb of all contemporary styles of American music and we look forward to once again enjoying it with you! Laissez les bons temp rouler!”
New Orleans, the cradle of jazz and home to many distinct musical styles ranging from the modern to the traditional. Just the city’s name incites visions of festivals, dance, allure, mystery, and history. Musical influences and instruments from many cultures around the world, from Congo drumming to European horns, come together to create unique new sounds that could only come from New Orleans.
The Walla Walla Choral Society, a non-profit volunteer organization, promotes and performs accessible quality choral music for the Walla Walla Valley and collaborates with other artistic groups, enriching the community’s cultural life.
