100 Years of Music

The Newcomb Department of Music at Tulane University is celebrating its centennial anniversary in November. Founded in 1909 as the Newcomb College School of Music, it was the first music school in New Orleans to be associated with a liberal arts college. In honor of this milestone, a weeklong series of concerts will be held at Tulane University and in other locations around New Orleans beginning Nov. 2. All concerts are free and open to the public.

"For 100 years, the Department of Music has enriched the cultural lives of students, faculty and staff at Tulane as well as the people of New Orleans," said Michael Howard, chair of the department and artistic director of Summer Lyric Theatre. "Through offerings such as Summer Lyric Theatre, the weekly 'Music at Midday' concert series, the Classical Guitar and Piano Series, orchestra and choir concerts, our partnership with New Orleans Friends of Music, and the marching band at Mardi Gras, we hope we are bringing joy and beauty to our community."
