Over the last 51 years the organization has grown from presenting school performances of chamber music to our current position as the state's largest provider of arts-integrated and after-school programs. In 2012 Young Audiences of Louisiana employed over 250 trained teaching artists and educators to provide after-school programs for over 2,200 students free-of-charge in the Greater New Orleans area.
