Outstanding achievements in classical music, opera and dance will be recognized at the 16th annual Tribute to the Classical Arts luncheon Tuesday, March 9 at the Hotel Monteleone. Angela Hill of WWL-TV hosts the ceremonies, and there will be performances by nominated artists. John Ware (pictured), conductor of the Concert Choir and Opera Theater at Xavier University since 1995, will receive a Lifetime Achievement Award.
