Music In The City

Music in the City is a monthly offering sponsored by St. Andrew’s Cathedral and the law firm Wise, Carter, Child and Carraway. The event is held at the Mississippi Museum of Art and has a faithful following.  Dr. John Paul, organist and choirmaster at the Cathedral coordinates the programs and performs.  The current exhibit, Old Masters to Monet, inspired Tuesday evening’s program of french music performed on harpsichord and classical guitar.  This program was performed inside the exhibit which was especially nice.

The Mississippi Museum of Art in downtown Jackson is a beautiful facility and is surrounded by magnificent gardens…
