BATON ROUGE – Two well loved, longtime Baton Rouge institutions are joining together again for a magical outdoors concert.
The LSU Rural Life Museum and the Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra are proud to present the second annual “Symphony POPS!” at the Rural Life Museum concert event, led by associate conductor David Torns. The concert will take place Saturday, May 10, at the Rural Life Museum, 4560 Essen Ln., Baton Rouge. Gates open at 6 p.m., with the concert beginning at 7:30 p.m.
Associate Conductor David Torns will lead the orchestra in an evening of favorites from the American Songbook. The symphony will also be accompanied by another Baton Rouge star, Broadway singer Ana Andricain. After performing in such Broadway musicals as Belle in “Beauty and the Beast,” Fantine in “Les Miserables,” the title role in “Evita” and many other roles, Andricain returned home to Baton Rouge with her husband. She continues to perform and recently launched a line of handcrafted jewelry called Jewel of Havana.
