To add to the experience of the event, the HRAC has scheduled some "spirited" entertainment both inside and outside the building. Serving up some cabaret flavor for the night is Raynel Shepard who will sing the songs of Moulin Rouge, accompanied by New Orleans entertainer Harry Mayronne on piano. Art of the Cocktail attendees will hear classics such as “C’est Si Bon,” “I Love Paris,” and “La Vie en Rose,” evoking the sights and sounds of Paris. Also featured that night will be chamber folk music with a twist by Baton Rouge-based band Minos the Saint.
Advanced tickets only; tickets will not be sold at the door. $40 for HRAC members; $45 for non-members.
