The Music Box Roving Village, By New Orleans Airlift, Takes Flights Of Fancy In City Park

New Orleans Airlift has its Roving Village in City Park through Sunday.

For immersive music and sound experiences, New Orleans offers any number of clubs and festivals. There’s also The Music Box. It’s a collection of eccentric little houses, each one a sort of musical instrument.

This roving village will be at its City Park installation through Sunday, May 10 (this Mother's Day weekend) with performances conducted by Arto Lindsay the evenings of May 8 and 9. It’s the creation of art collective New Orleans Airlift.

We spoke with co-founders Jay Penington and Delaney Martin, starting with talk about the current Music Box location in City Park.

The Music Box is open in City Park on Friday, Saturday and Sunday through May 10.  More on performances, future locations and other happenings:
