Travel Tour: Boo! Halloween in New Orleans

New Orleans is a great city all of the time but Halloween is especially fun. Not as crazy as Mardi Gras and not as overwhelming. Costumes are not required but call Larry for suggestions of accoutrements that can be purchased in NOLA.

And there is much more to this trip than just Halloween – Preservation Hall, seeing private homes, architectural tour, great food, and much more. Spots are still available.

New musical experience @ St. Joseph's Park

The Landmark Society, in a new partnership with Eastman Community Music School, is pleased to announce two noontime concerts at St. Joseph’s Park this summer. The first is a performance of the Gamelan Ensemble on Wednesday, July 10th, 12-12:45 PM.

The Eastman School’s Balinese gamelan angklung, Lila Muni (Beautiful Sound) is an ensemble consisting largely of percussion instruments, such as metalophones, gongs, and drums, as well as flutes and voices. Gamelan at Eastman, as in Bali, is a communal effort.

Members include Eastman students, faculty, and staff, as well as many members of the Rochester community. Learned through the oral/aural tradition without notation, the music requires players to work together for long periods to learn the music and how to play it. The result is a sense of group unity and pride for the audience to hear the music and witness the collective efforts of the group.

Take a moment this month to experience music in The Landmark Society’s unique urban park at the corner of N. Clinton and Pleasant Street, right behind Sibley Square.
