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 Tulane UniversityRayne Memorial United Methodist Church, Urban South Brewery, and WWNO for its second season of great music making.  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.

Planning for CCCMF 2017 is well underway, and we will soon have updated artists, programs, and details for next season!
