Welcome to the Crescent City Chamber Music Festival website! After two fantastic seasons, I am so excited for what we have in store for 2018. Plans are currently underway to again bring some of the world’s most accomplished and sought-after musicians to join me in presenting the greatest Classical chamber music ever written to the Greater New Orleans community. Updates on our 2018 season will be added to this website as they become available and will also be sent out to our mailing list, so please sign up to receive these periodic updates by clicking here.
At its heart, 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 interactive outreach concerts in nursing homes, schools, churches, helping organizations, 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 FREE public performances for some truly meaningful music making. See you at the concert!
