The Crescent City Chamber Music Festival (CCCMF) will mark its eighth year with a week-long celebration of classical chamber music from October 12 to 22, 2023. Seven free public concerts will occur at various venues across New Orleans, inviting music enthusiasts to partake in this year’s theme: “Songs of the Earth.”

Crescent City Chamber Music Festival Director and New Orleans native, Luke Fleming, a faculty member at the University of New Orleans School of the Arts, expressed his excitement for the upcoming event. “We are thrilled to present our eighth season of extraordinary chamber music-making in some of New Orleans’ most acoustically and aesthetically stellar venues, all free and open to the public,” he shared.

The festival’s commitment to community outreach will again be integral to its mission. In addition to the seven free public concerts, the Crescent City Chamber Music Festival artists will engage in over thirty outreach performances at schools, retirement communities, missions, and charitable organizations throughout Greater New Orleans. Local student chamber music groups will also have the opportunity to be mentored and coached by the artists.
