As part of its regular Friday Nights at NOMA series, the New Orleans Museum of Art presents a talk with Kim Teter, author of the young-adult novel Isabella’s Libretto (2014). In the talk, Teter talks about an orchestra that formed under the direction of composer Antonio Vivaldi at an all-girls orphanage in early 18th-century Venice.
