One of our favorite foods here in Louisiana is raw oysters. Oysters are also the favorite place to hang out for a couple of bacteria that are very unfriendly to human beings. Notwithstanding, few people in Louisiana has gotten sick from a raw oyster in some time. The reason for that is a company called AmeriPure. AmeriPure kills the bad bacteria in oysters without affecting the oyster’s taste.

Plus, salad dressings and Spotify.

  Carlos Miguel Prieto says he can’t dance and he’s no good at golf. Those may be the only pursuits that elude him. As a youngster, growing up in Mexico City, he wanted to play violin. So, he did. As a teenager, he wanted to become an engineer. So, he did. As a young man, he wanted to run a business. So, he did. And, in the 1990s, Prieto decided to give up industry and become a symphony conductor. So far, so good.

“I’ve been doing it for about 20 years now and I thought maybe at some point I’m not going to love it as much as I do now,” he told Gwen recently. “I still do.”

This week on Inside the Arts, we talk with renowned violin virtuoso Regina Carter. The multi-genre violinist will perform works from her most recent release, Southern Comfort, in concert at the Contemporary Arts Center.

This Continuum presents a program of music inspired by four medieval gardens, namely; The Garden of Zephirus, The Garden of Earthly Delights, Dreams in the Pleasure Garden, and Dance in the Garden of Mirth. Four different early music ensembles perform this delightful music.

Continuum presents a program of medieval and Renaissance estampies, trottos, ductias and many other forms of foot stomping dance music performed by four outstanding early music ensembles including the legendary New Your Pro Musica. This is an hour of upbeat early music.

What do you hear when he plays his clarinet?

 

Can you hear the bayou? The river? The French Quarter? People sitting on their stoops waiting for someone to deliver the news? Penny parties?

That’s not a clarinet in the doctor’s hands; it’s a time machine.  

The music of Hildegard of Bingen, the 12th century Sibyl of the Rhine, philosopher, abbess, architect, polymath and composer is featured on this Continuum.

The UNO Department of Music and the Arts Administration Program, in partnership with WWNO, presents the next Musical Excursion Series concert featuring the dynamic British Baroque quartet Red Priest, Tuesday, March 1 at 7:30 p.m. in the UNO Recital Hall in the Performing Arts Center.

This program is a recording of early music played by the modern early music ensemble from Paris, Capriccio Stravagante, directed by its founder, New Orleans-born Skip Sempe.
