From our earliest instruments through mid-20th century recording devices, music has been essential in southern homes, churches and communities. This August, THNOC’s New Orleans Antiques Forum, “Music To My Eyes: Material Culture of Southern Sound,” will immerse attendees in the objects and art that embody the development of “southern sound.”
Sessions will explore the material culture of parlor entertainment, First Nations social dances and storytelling, musical furniture, early country and western costumes, 19th-century opera in the French Quarter and much more.
Registration is now open, and the event is sure to sell out. Visit hnoc.org for more information.
