The NOCCA Foundation, The Times-Picayune | New Orleans Advocate, and the family of Daniel Price invite you to Home for the Holidays on Wednesday, December 20, 2023. This annual concert event will be held at House of Blues New Orleans, located at 225 Decatur Street.

Home for the Holidays is a night of spectacular art and music benefiting the Daniel Price Memorial Fund for Aspiring Artists, which honors the memory of NOCCA alum Daniel Price (Visual Arts, 1993). The fund was established following Daniel’s death at the age of 28 while protecting his wife from an assailant. Daniel’s fund is part of the NOCCA Foundation’s Student Success Program, which provides NOCCA’s young artists with year-round support for training, supplies, and college scholarships.
