The Daniel Price Memorial Fund for Aspiring Artists was created by the family of NOCCA graduate Daniel Price, who was murdered in San Francisco in 2003. Since his death, the organization has raised more than $300,000 for New Orleans area arts students. Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews is a graduate of the NOCCA as well, and the explosive bandleader is also a member of the NOCCA Institute’s Board of Directors.
