Plessy School Strings Students to Perform Music at the Mint
New Orleans, La. (December 6, 2017)
–Tomorrow morning at 10:00 AM, Homer A. Plessy Community School (Plessy School) will showcase its Strings Program at a concert hosted by the New Orleans Jazz Museum in the Old U.S. Mint. The second through sixth grade students will be performing both original music and standards. The performance is open to the public.
“We are thrilled at the addition of the New Orleans Jazz Museum to Plessy’s community partners,” said Rebecca Crenshaw, the school’s Arts Department Chair. “Since moving to the French Quarter, our students have experienced new cultural enrichments and chances to improve both their technical skills and performance style.”
“I’m ecstatic for our strings students to play live at such a state of the art performance space,” said Meghan Raychaudhuri, Plessy’s Head of School. “The Mint has such pure sound. It seems like the most appropriate reward for our student’s many hours of practice, to hear their orchestra play beautifully as a unit.”
