Musaica was founded by a group of New Orleans professional musicians in the fall of 2006 from the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra and Loyola and Tulane Universities. It is a non-profit chamber
ensemble whose mission is to promote and foster chamber music
performance; to encourage the composition of new music; and to increase
the awareness and appreciation of chamber music. Musaica was the recipient of the "Best Chamber Music Concert" award for 2007 from Gambit's Tribute to the Classical Arts. In addition, Musaica received Gambit nominations for "Best Chamber Music Concert" in 2008 for its program of great American chamber music and in 2009 for its benefit concert for the Greater New Orleans Youth Orchestra. In 2010, Musaica was nominated for "Best Performance of New Classical Music" for its world premiere of William Vollinger's "Duck Girl, an Imaginary Interview with Ruthie Moulon." The first program of our Sixth Season, "A Tribute to Klauspeter Seibel" was nominated by Gambit as Best Chamber Music Concert of 2011. You can help support Musaica with your tax-deductible donations.
