Greater New Orleans Youth Symphony outside La Madeleine in Paris

The Greater New Orleans Youth Orchestra toured France, a country with which the orchestra has close ties as they are from the French-speaking part of the United States. In addition to their city's cultural link to France, their music director, Dr. Jean Montès is from Haïti and was able to connect with the French audiences through music and speech which was an aspect loved by all audiences. The concert tour program contrasted works by Mozart, Vivaldi and Beethoven with pieces that showcased the musical traditions of New Orleans and Haïti.

GNOYO collaborated with local orchestras, did home stays and went to many smaller towns before they performed at renowned Chartres Cathedral. They finally headed to Paris where they enjoyed a visit of the city and a sunset cruise on the Seine. The musical highlight of the tour was a stellar concert at the beautiful Parisian church, La Madeleine. An enthusiastic crowd filled the church and clapped in time with State Street Strut and International Dixieland Jamboree that closed the program. The final concert was near Monet's home in Giverny where the musicians had an opportunity to try out the town's 400 year old organ and played side by side in concert with French musicians.
"A fantastic experience for our group in France."
—Katherine Cain - President, Greater New Orleans Youth Orchestra
