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.
We invite you to join us in our 2017-18 season as we present eminent string quartets, master pianists, clarinet and guitar virtuosi, early music, new music, and a Baroque orchestra in our annual concert series. FLEX subscription ticketing allows the most affordable experience and gives you the freedom to adjust your tickets to your schedule.
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 can now attend our concerts free of charge. Through our Educational Outreach program, and in collaboration with other musical organizations, our performing ensembles present masterclasses, lectures, demonstrations and artist residencies at local schools and universities throughout the season.
