The symposium is part of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation’s Tom Dent Congo Square Lecture Series. It will address the connections between art – especially music – and spiritual solace, as well as the link between art forms practiced in antiquity and in the present day.
The symposium is presented in conjunction with the Congo Square New World Rhythms Festival, a free event presented by the Jazz & Heritage Foundation in nearby Armstrong Park March 24-25. Admission to the festival is free. For details, please see www.CongoSquareRhythms.com….
