Based in New Orleans, The Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra was founded in 1991 and remains the only full-time professional orchestra in the Gulf South. Led by Music Director Carlos Miguel Prieto, the company offers a 36 week concert season that includes a variety of classical pieces, contemporary compositions and casual classics as well as family, education and outreach concerts. Since Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the members were forced to perform at a different location due to the flooding of its longtime base, the Orpheum Theater. Nevertheless, the orchestra had continued to move forward, raising awareness of the disaster and using it to fuel its contemporary classical sound.

Giacomo Puccini's Il Trittico is composed of three one-act operas: Il Tabarro, Suor Angelica and Gianni Schicchi. Il Tabarro takes place in a barge on the Seine, where one dockworker finds out that his beloved wife has been having an affair with another fellow longshoreman, prompting him to a murderous and vengeful rage. Suor Angelica tells the sad tale of a nun who entered a convent after having given birth to a child out of wedlock and tarnished the family name. When her sister cruelly informs her of her dead son, Angelica is gripped by the vision that her child awaits her in heaven, and thus, she resolves to commit suicide by poisoning herself. Afterwards, she realizes that suicide is a sin and pleads to the Virgin Mary for forgiveness before meeting her death. But her prayers are answered: the Virgin Mary appears, along with Angelica's son and the two are finally reunited. Of the three, Gianni Schicchi is similarly tragic, but more of the comedic variety: Gianni Schicchi and his family plot to finagle the inheritance from the family patriarch Buoso Donati; but much to the dismay of the family, Schicchi shrewdly awards himself the biggest shares.
Shovels & Rope is a group that prides itself on simplicity. Based out of Charleston, South Carolina, the folk duo, comprised of Cary Ann Hearst and Michael Trent, uses two old guitars, a tin pan alley styled drum set (comprised of parts found at a junk yard), as well as harmonicas and heaps of vocals to create a style of music the two call "sloppy tonk." Shovels & Rope spent the majority of 2011 on the road, performing in various bars and music venues, where it was able to hone its approach before opting to record its debut album, which was released in 2012.
