"Music to My Eyes" - HNOC Antiques Forum

 —  —

Historic New Orleans Collection, Williams Research Center, 410 Chartres, New Orleans, LA

The music of New Orleans and the Gulf South region is world famous, rich in history, and foundational to the area’s culture, traditions, and economy. This “backstage pass” will provide participants with exclusive access to objects and experiences that help tell the stories of our music and musicians. This experience is only available for participants of the Antiques Forum.

Participants will meet at the Williams Research Center (WRC), home to more than a million objects in the holdings of The Historic New Orleans Collection. Our experts will present a carefully curated selection of artifacts of interest to forum attendees including items belonging to the Boswell Sisters, Louis Moreau Gottschalk, and new acquisitions from the estate of Chris Owens. Also on view will be the only known photograph of Buddy Bolden, stunning dance cards from long-ago Mardi Gras balls, and antique instruments, including a drum used by four-war veteran Jordan Noble and a clarinet owned by jazz legend Sidney Bechet.

Participants will enjoy refreshments in a private historic courtyard at the WRC (weather permitting) after viewing the objects.

Carnaval, 2227 St. Claude Ave,, New Orleans

The Pfister Sisters are back - Harmony, high-balls, hi-jinks! And great Brazilian food, all in a clean spacious interior. Buy your tix with your peeps so you can all be seated together, as we work out the monkey puzzle that is The New Normal.

Buy your tix in multiples of 2, so Carnaval can set up tables in advance. EventBrite adds surcharges, but the majority of this ticket price goes to us!
