Marigny Parade Opens Prospect 2

New Orleans, Louisiana – Lines of trombones, clarinets and snare drums on a sunny, Saturday afternoon generally mean it's time for a second line or a football game. But when four separate marching bands, all playing the same song, converge in one place? The Marigny Parade - a one time performance, future video art piece, and original musical composition -- also kicked-off Prospect.2, New Orleans' second, city-wide visual arts bienniale. Eve Abrams followed the parade and discovered the story behind it, and the man who composed it.
