Luke Fleming, Founding Artistic Director

Welcome to the Crescent City Chamber Music Festival website!  After our fantastic inaugural season, I am so excited for what we have in store for our second season.  Again, over the course of one week in August, some of the world’s most accomplished and sought-after musicians will join me in presenting some of the greatest Classical chamber music ever written to the Greater New Orleans community.  At its heart, however, CCCMF is an outreach/mission-centric festival.  In addition to the concerts we will present to the public (all FREE of charge) we will perform in sixteen different nursing homes, hospitals, schools, charities, and missions all over New Orleans.

Though I now reside in New York, where I am also Artistic Director of the Manhattan Chamber Players (our Ensemble-in-Residence at CCCMF), I am a New Orleans native – I was born here, and most of my family still lives in and around NOLA. It means so much for me to bring this amazing music and mission to my family, friends, and so many more here in this unique, vibrant, wonderful city.  Please check out the rest of the website, and I hope you will join us at our three FREE public performances for some truly meaningful music making.  See you at the concert!
