Music on the Bay - Preservation in May

May 8

The grounds of the Old Brick House will be filled with music as the Biloxi High Jazz Ensemble performs in this historic setting. One of the oldest, if not the oldest, buildings in Biloxi, the Old Brick House is important as a glimpse into life in antebellum Biloxi. Tours of the 1830s era home will be offered. The Nature Conservancy and the Gulf Coast Design Studio will be on hand to explain a living shoreline project currently underway. Refreshments will be served. Attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and picnic blankets.

This event is a part of this year's Preservation in May series which will feature a number of firsts: A visit to Cedar Lake island, a visit from First Lady Deborah Bryant, and the opening of the state's first school museum.

The five-week program, which takes place each Thursday in May, with a visit to Cedar Lake Island, which is nestled across from Cedar Lake United Methodist Church, and wraps up with a salute to Keesler Air Force Base, "as Biloxi as boiled shrimp and Barq's," on May 29 at the Biloxi Visitors Center.  During the month, those attending the free sessions will enjoy music at the Old Brick House, the opening of the state's first school museum at Biloxi Public Schools, and an author storyteller debunking or amplifying folklore about the Gulf Coast and Magnolia State.

The award-winning month-long program is designed to celebrate the diverse cultural heritage of Biloxi and is conducted in observance of National Preservation Month. The project, marking its seventh year this year, is an undertaking of the City of Biloxi, Biloxi Bay Chamber, Biloxi Main Street, Biloxi Public Schools, and the Local History & Genealogy Department of the Biloxi Public Library.
In keeping with tradition ‘Passports through History' will be distributed and will be stamped at each program. Everyone with a passport who receives at least three stamps will receive a commemorative gift for their support of local preservation at the May 29th event. It's an enjoyable way for all to learn more about and to celebrate the rich cultural heritage of Biloxi.
