History museum hosts unique benefit for famed French cathedral

by The 100 Companies

Cathedral of Notre Dame organist Olivier Latry, seen here in a 2007 video, will perform at The Historic New Orleans Collection on Nov. 15. Latry’s recital will serve as a benefit for employees of Notre Dame affected by loss of work since the devastating fire in April.

On Friday, Nov. 15, The Historic New Orleans Collection will host a rare performance with Olivier Latry, one of three organists for the famed Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris.

Latry’s recital will be the first public event showcasing the history museum’s restored Aeolian organ. The instrument was installed in 1925 as part of a lavishly appointed residence on the third floor of 520 Royal St. It is now part of the exhibition galleries dedicated to the French Quarter’s history.

The event also serves as a benefit for Notre Dame employees affected by the devastating fire in April of this year.
