Celebrate NOCCA’s 40th birthday at ‘The Big 4-Oh Gala!’ May 17

Written by  NOCCA
The New Orleans Center for Creative Arts, or NOCCA as it’s more affectionately known, is one of the true gems of this city. Founded in 1973, NOCCA has produced some of the most talented New Orleanians we all know and love…musicians Trombone Shorty and Wynton and Branford Marsalis, artist Terrance Osborne, actor Wendell Pierce, and IntheNOLA’s very own, LaTesha Gonzales, just to name few!
 
From its humble beginnings Uptown on Perrier St. to the state-of-the-art building in the Marigny, NOCCA continues to educate our youth and support and encourage the creative arts that our city has so much of. And this Sunday NOCCA is opening its doors and inviting the community to continue to support the arts AND celebrate the 40th birthday at The Big 4-Oh! Gala on Sunday, May 17!
The evening will feature performances by GRAMMY Award-winners Pedrito Martinez and Terence Blanchard, plus Jee Yeoun Ko and Michael Pellera; food by New Orleans’ top chefs including Tory McPhail, Frank Brigtsen, Justin Devillier, and Aaron Burgau; specialty hors d’oeuvres prepared by NOCCA’s Culinary Arts students and faculty; a mobile silent and live auction; and entertainment by NOCCA students and alumni!
 
This very special party will take place in NOCCA’s brand new Chevron Forum on Press Street. Celebrate NOCCA in this gorgeous space, lit up by Solomon Group and sponsored in part by The New Orleans Advocate.
 
The Big 4-Oh! Gala starts at 6:00pm, with a special “Twilight” party to follow. Purchasers of Big 4-Oh! tickets gain admission to the entire evening-long event; Twilight guests are admitted at 7:30pm.
 
The Big 4-Oh! Gala supports The NOCCA Institute and generates important funds for financial aid programs, artist residencies, and many other initiatives that benefit the students and faculty at the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts. The success of this event relies heavily on your generous support.
 
As you can see, the The Big 4-Oh! Gala promises to be a night of showcasing the wonderful things happening at NOCCA. Come out and enjoy the talent and success of so many artists that call this city home.
