UNO documentary: Lifting the curtain on the LPO

The LPO's Ron Birmingham talks shop.

Putting on a world-class concert takes more than an array of accomplished musicians -- even when you have 67 of them. In "Behind the Scenes of the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra," UNO film documentary student Justin Ditch lifts the curtain on the inner workings of the LPO.

The next opportunity to catch the orchestra in action is at "Becoming America -- The Musical Journey," a concert taking place at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at St. Louis Cathedral. For more about the free event, click here.

The Film and Theatre Department of UNO and NolaVie present this weekly series of short films produced by the students in Laszlo Fulop's documentary class. Read Renee Peck's column about the program here.
