Singer-songwriter Randy Newman played piano for family, friends and fans at a private reception after “You’ve Got a Friend in Me: An Evening with Randy Newman,” the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra’s sell-out concert. The gathering was at the George Rodrigue Gallery in the Sheraton New Orleans Hotel and recognized the partnership between the LPO and the Rodrigue Foundation in promoting arts education in Louisiana. Newman also signed the Blue Dog Steinway piano and autographed a Rodrigue lithograph, which will be auctioned by the LPO in April.
