Masterless Mistresses

When: Sun., Feb. 16, 3-5 p.m. 2020
Phone: (512) 912-6827
Price: Free
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 the 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 that will tell the story of New Orleans' history.
