Cultural riches

Truly a montage

Whether it’s Music, theatre, fine arts, or dance - Loyola inspires you to explore, practice, and celebrate the arts.

At Loyola, you can

Experience more outside the classroom with New Orleans’ street festivals, historical architecture details, food, and culture. The Big Easy is an easy place to tap into your creative side and the city’s history and creative atmosphere have always been alluring to artists of all kinds –– as well as those who enjoy their work.

Our fine and performing arts series, Montage, hosts some of the top arts events in the region every year. Recent performances include the Vienna Boys Choir, Mozart’s The Magic Flute, alumnus and jazz legend Victor Goines, and The Priests, a classical musical group from Northern Ireland.
