YLC Wednesday at the Square
Spring is here and with it comes the return of the popular outdoor concert series, YLC Wednesday at the Square, to Lafayette Square. It is free and open to the public. Proceeds from food and drink sales benefit the Young Leadership Council’s community service projects. It runs through May 24, but April’s lineup is particularly exciting, with George Porter Jr., Jon Cleary and Big Sam’s Funky Nation all slated to perform. Information, YLCNola.org


Zurich Golf Classic
Local golf fans rejoice: The city’s premier golf tournament is back. An annual event since 1958, it has attracted big names like Jack Nicklaus, Lee Trevino and Tom Watson. This year’s tournament takes place April 24-30 at the Tournament Players Club in Avondale. Tickets are available on a day-to-day or package basis. Information, ZurichGolfClassic.com


Carmina Burana
The most-performed choral work of the 20th century is coming to Loyola University’s Roussel Hall on April 5, courtesy of the Symphony Chorus of New Orleans. Movie buffs will recognize the music from films as varied as Excalibur, Natural Born Killers and Jackass. The featured songs cover topics as varied as springtime, love, sex, gambling and fortune.
