"A triumph of musicianship and adventurous programming"---Chris Waddington, New Orleans Times-Picayune


Musaica was founded in the fall of 2006 by a group of New Orleans professional musicians 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; and the first program of our Seventh Season, "Musaica Goes to the Movies," was nominated as "Best Chamber Music Concert" of 2012.   Most recently, Musaica again was nominated by Gambit for "Best Performance of New Classical Music" in 2013 with its performance of Mollie O'Meara's "The Air was Green–A Remembrance." In addition Musaica's performance of "Lament for Two Violas" by Frank Bridge in October, 2013, was listed by the Nola Defender as one of the top ten classical performances in 2013.
