The Ursuline Academy Bach Piano Contest was founded in 1960 by Sr. Elizabeth Marie Landry, OSU. Alumna, high school music teacher, and former contestant, Helen Honoree Myers '84, brought the competition back to the Academy and has directed it ever since. It was Mrs. Myers who added the strings to the competition. The competition, which is open to students in the greater New Orleans area, continues to serve as a tribute to Sr. Elizabeth Marie and her many contributions. 

"Sr. Elizabeth Marie was a visionary in music education, with the greater New Orleans piano teachers and their students reaping the rewards." - Helen Honoree Myers '84, N.C.T.M.
