The Crescent City Chamber Music Festival is an outreach/mission-centric festival that will be presented by the Manhattan Chamber Players for a second season from from August 24 – 30, 2017 in New Orleans, LA.  As in its inaugural 2016 season, MCP will partner with Rayne Memorial United Methodist Church, Urban South Brewery, and WWNO, adding Make Music NOLA to our partner list of local organizations committing to bringing amazing chamber music to New Orleans.  Continuing its mission, MCP Artists will visit various nursing homes, hospitals, schools, and missions in the Greater New Orleans area, providing interactive musical performances of the highest level in sixteen different locations in the city.   In addition, MCP will present three public concerts: an informal concert (with beer pairings!) at Urban South Brewery (August 24) and full recital programs at Tulane University’s Dixon Hall (August 25) and Rayne Memorial United Methodist Church (August 27), all FREE and open to the public.

MCP operates CCCMF on a shoestring budget of only $20,000 a season, which pays for artist fees, travel expenses, publicity, program printing, and recording costs.  Please consider donating to CCCMF.  No donation is too small, and as we are a 501(c)3 organization, it’s 100% tax-deductible (plus, it comes with a free music download!).  You may choose to donate online through a secure transaction system, or by mailing a check to our address.
