New Orleans Airlift debuts composer Yotam Haber’s New Water Music, a free, public performance on Lake Pontchartrain that highlights Louisiana’s ongoing coastal erosion crisis through a procession of fishing boats and a concert by hundreds of local musicians. New Water Music takes inspiration from George Frideric Handel’s Water Music, which was performed in London for King George I in 1717.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information, visit New Orleans Airlift’s website.
