This is a very pretty church, outside and in: Outside, the Gothic Revival construction dates to 1853; inside, elaborate carved wood panels show off a 5,000-pipe organ. But the big attraction here is that it gets regular play. Weekly pipe organ concerts by the music director, Albinas Prizgintas, often accompanied by local singers and musicians, feature traditional repertoire by names you know, like Bach, Pachelbel, Led Zeppelin, and Michael Jackson. Tuesday the organ accompanies a meditative, candle-lit labrinth walk. On the list of eclectic things to do in New Orleans on a Tuesday or Sunday evening, this is up there.
