The NOCCA Institute will collaborate with the New Orleans Film Society (NOFS) on a new music documentary series titled "Seeing Music," which will celebrate New Orleans' hometown heroes by showcasing films by and about New Orleans musicians. Screenings will be held in Freda Lupin Memorial Hall on the NOCCA campus at 2800 Chartres Street. Other partners on Seeing Music include WWOZ 90.7FM and OffBeat. The series will kick off at 7pm on February 5th, 2019 with the WWOZ-produced documentary Closeup: Tank & the Bangas.
