NOLA Chamber Fest 2023 was our largest festival to date with 200 students making up more than 35 ensembles participating including our first ever international ensemble participants. We kicked off our 2023 festival with a side-by-side Community Concert at the Marigny Opera House with our Community Partners. We also presented our 2022 Emerging Ensemble Division Winners Tallā Rouge in a Winners Residency with performances at the University of New Orleans and The Rink in Uptown New Orleans. We collaborated with five community partner organizations for our second annual Creativity Day including Palacios House of Arts, Crescent City String Academy, The Willow School, the Greater New Orleans Youth Orchestra and St. Katharine Drexel Prep. And we heard fantastic, diverse, and new repertoire through our online competition.
We are so grateful to our guest artists including Chloe Swindler, Mia Rotondo, Aizuri Quartet and Akropolis Reed Quintet who made this year such a fantastic experience for the participants!
