Upcoming Concerts

The New Orleans Friends of Music (a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization) is dedicated to bringing world-class chamber music to the New Orleans region. The fall concerts for the 2020-21 season had to be cancelled but we are proud to bring you five concerts this spring.

SINCE 1955 New Orleans Friends of Music, a not-for-profit organization, has presented chamber music of exceptional quality. Our mission was then, as it is now, to support and extend the full range of chamber music through performance, commissions, and educational activities that engage and invite people of all ages and from all walks of life to appreciate the beauty of the art form, and to foster both well-known and emerging extraordinary musicians.

Numerous studies have demonstrated that experiencing classical music in general and chamber music specifically, in addition to delighting our ears, can also have a profoundly positive impact on both our social and intellectual well-being. Recognizing this, Friends of Music is also dedicated to exposing New Orleans’ young musicians to this important art form. Students are invited to attend all Friends of Music season concerts free of charge.  Through our Educational Outreach program, our performing ensembles present master classes, lectures, demonstrations and artist residencies at local schools and universities throughout the season. In collaboration with Lyrica Baroque and UNO, New Orleans Friends of Music presents NOLA Chamber Fest, New Orleans’ very own annual chamber music competition.
