Crescent City Chamber Music Festival

The Crescent City Chamber Music Festival (CCMF) will commemorate its sixth anniversary with seven free public concerts at venues throughout New Orleans from September 30 to October 10, 2021. 

I am thrilled to be back home in the city that I love, teaching music and also working to grow the Crescent City Chamber Music Festival from right here in New Orleans. ~Festival Director and native New Orleanian,  Luke Fleming

Crescent City Chamber Music Festival

This year’s theme is “(Over)Come Together” and will bring together 21 world-class chamber music artists as well as prominent New Orleans classical musicians. This year’s festival will welcome Ensemble-in-Residence the Escher String Quartet, an American string quartet based in New York City, where they serve as Artists of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. And, as always, the festival will once again feature the renowned Manhattan Chamber Players, a collective of New York-based musicians who have delivered compelling performances of the most moving pieces that the chamber repertoire has to offer year-after-year at CCCMF.

It is important to the festival’s mission that we continue make our community outreach and free performances available to people from all walks of life. We will, of course, follow all COVID-19 protocols in place at that time. ~Luke Fleming
