“NOCTURNE XVIII” brought music to the ears of arts patrons with a champagne reception, a salon recital by a world-renowned pianist and a seated dinner at the Ritz-Carlton. The annual gala and fundraiser of the Musical Arts Society of New Orleans, this beautiful and anticipated evening allows MASNO to continue offering a wide variety of musical programming throughout the year.
Internationally acclaimed Canadian pianist Angela Cheng, known for her technique and musicianship, performed works by Haydn, Chaminade and Chopin. Praised as one of her country’s national treasures, Cheng has performed with virtually every orchestra in Canada and with symphonies all over the world and is an avid recitalist throughout the United States and Canada. Cheng was Gold Medalist of the Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Masters Competition, the first Canadian to win the prestigious Montreal International Piano Competition and was awarded the Canada Council’s coveted Career Development Grant and the Medal of Excellence for outstanding interpretations of Mozart from the Mozarteum in Salzburg.
The program was presented with support from Drs. Andrea and Archie Brown; Ritz-Carlton New Orleans; Steinway and Sons; Hall Piano Company; WWNO 89.9 and Classical 104.9 FM; Where Y’at; The Wine Seller; and Victoria Z Photography.
