Celebrating 25 years of performances, UNO’s School of the Arts, departments of Music and Arts Administration collaborate to bring this award-winning series to the Lakefront campus each year. The programing showcases acclaimed classical artists from around the world, connecting the New Orleans community and UNO students to artists and performances in an accessible format. As part of its community outreach mission, our visiting artists connect with budding musicians to provide invaluable expertise and guidance in master class settings with both university, secondary, and primary level students.
