Music lovers will be treated to performances by Grammy-winner and elite classical guitarist Jason Vieaux, described by NPR as “perhaps the most precise and soulful classical guitarist of his generation.” In a different twist for the festival, the Oct. 5 concert at the University of New Orleans Performing Arts Center will feature all local classical musicians.

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
