The second annual Crescent City Chamber Music Festival will hold one of its three concerts on the uptown campus of Tulane University, Saturday, in Rogers Memorial Chapel. An informal pre-concert talk will also be held at 7 p.m. in the chapel.

The festival, which brings some of the world’s most accomplished and sought-after musicians to the Greater New Orleans community, is presented by artistic director and New Orleans native Luke Fleming with the Manhattan Chamber Players.  

In addition to the concert at Tulane that begins at 7:30 p.m., the Crescent City Chamber Music Festival will hold two other free concerts that are open to the public:

  • Thursday, Aug. 24, at 6 p.m. at Urban South Brewery, 1645 Tchoupitoulas St.

  • Sunday, Aug. 27 at 3 p.m. at Rayne Memorial United Methodist Church, 3900 St. Charles Ave.

Outside of the concerts that will make up the festival lineup, members of the Manhattan Chamber Players, a highly acclaimed chamber music group, will perform 16 free interactive concerts for schools, nursing homes, churches and other helping agencies and mission sites across the city.
