The Regional Arts Council of Zachary is excited to announce the lineup for the Spring series Concerts at the Pointe.
Created in 2014, Concerts at the Pointe makes quality performing arts easily accessible to the residents of Zachary and surrounding communities.
For Spring 2018, RACZ has selected three very different musical acts to delight audiences.
The Original Magnolia String Quartet has been providing beautiful music for weddings, parties and religious functions in the Baton Rouge and surrounding area for over 25 years. As native Louisianians and graduates of the LSU Music School, active members of the Baton Rouge Symphony, Louisiana Sinfonietta, and freelance ensembles, they have played with well known performers such as Yo-Yo Ma, Isaac Perlman, Renee Flemming, Moody Blues, Ben Vereen, Chris Boti, Metropolitan Opera vocalists, and many more.

Born and raised in Baton Rouge, Michael McDowell has a musical upbringing as varied as Louisiana’s multicultural background.Though classically trained, he grew up listening to the piano stylings of Elton John and George Winston and began composing for piano before he was a teenager. Now he defines his unique style as “classical-contemporary crossover”. Drawing from the rhythmic syncopations of modern music and complex harmonic and melodic contours of Baroque and Classical composers, each piece McDowell performs is a virtuosic gumbo seasoned with his own distinctive touch and flare- an approach that has earned him a considerable following.
McDowell has performed at the Shaw Center in solo and with an orchestra. You will be enthralled by his showmanship and his artistry.
All three concerts will be held at The Pointe at Americana in Zachary. The concerts will begin at 7:00pm.
