Thursday through Monday, March 14-18, nearly 100 CHS band, choir and orchestra students and nine adults took an exciting performance tour to New Orleans. The students performed at the Riverwalk Marketplace, Woldenberg Park on the banks of the Mississippi River and at the lovely 19th century Poydras Home.
They also engaged in a jazz workshop and clinic with music faculty at the University of New Orleans. When not performing, the students went on a swamp tour, visited the French Quarter, experienced the history of Oak Alley Plantation, danced to a live zydeco band, and went on a sunset dinner cruise on the Steamboat Natchez. Thanks to all the students, chaperones, parents, boosters, and administrative team members who supported this wonderful, memorable educational experience for our student musicians.
