NEW ORLEANS, LA — On July 11 at 6 p.m., the husband and wife duo, trumpeter Vance Woolf and pianist Cara McCool will be performing classics from all around the world. From Vienna to Venice, Melbourne to New Orleans, New York to Paris and many more. The duo will perform some of their favorite works from Ravel, Poulenc, Mozart, Bernstein, Williams, Clarke and others.

Cara McCool is from Louisville, Mississippi. She is a pianist and has been the Executive & Artistic Director of the Musical Arts Society of New Orleans (MASNO) since 2014. She is also responsible for the direction of the New Orleans International Piano Competition and Keyboard Festival. McCool is a collaborative pianist with high demand who, most of the time, performs alongside a Principal Trumpeter of the Philharmonic Orchestra and her husband, Vance Woolf, and owns an award-winning piano studio.

Vance Woolf is a trumpeter from Motueka, New Zealand, who still actively performs as a chamber musician, while also teaching classical trumpet at Loyola University, New Orleans. In 2000, he joined the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra as a Principal Trumpeter and has toured nationally and internationally with orchestras such as the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra and the San Francisco Symphony as a featured soloist.

The event is presented with support from Hall Piano Company and will be held at the Salle À Manger, or dining room, of the Beauregard-Keyes House on July 11 from 6 p.m until 8 p.m. Tickets will be priced at $35, and the seating will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. It is a Bring Your Own Beverage event, which means it would be better for you to bring your own bottle openers and extra cups.
