CCSC welcomed eight guests to rehearsal
CCSC' s annual show was held at The Academy of the Sacred Heart’s Nims Theater. In the opening scene, CCSC marched through the audience to the tune of“When The Saints Go Marching In”, played by the Chalmette High Jazz Band. Already the audience was ready for an exciting show. The first songs were “New Attitude” followed by “In the Mood.” The three quartets, Fleur de Lis, Felicity and JazzMaTazz sang to perfection and the small group “Just for Fun” sang an Elvis Medley with a not so lively Elvis. “Dancing Queen” with choreography and “Beauty School Drop Out” featuring the Rah Rahs with hair curlers was a show stopper. The finale was “Jail House Rock” played by the Chalmette High Jazz Band and sung by the chorus including dancing. Oh what a night!!!!
Pat Cochran Honored at Cancer Crusaders
Pat Cochran, Bass and Team Member Performance Coordinator was one of twelve honored at The Cancer Crusaders Celebration of Life Luncheon at the Marriott New Orleans Hotel.
In September 2001, a needle biopsy was done on her right breast. Even though the results were benign, she still felt uneasy. Six months later another needle biopsy was performed and the results revealed cancer. Then what followed seemed like a whirlwind of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatments. She is now 11 years cancer free. Unfortunately the radiation treatment caused damage to her aortic valve. She went into congestive heart failure and had open-heart surgery in April of 2012. She had a full recovery and is back working and singing.
“In spite of the many things that Cancer can do, it cannot take away your joy of life.” Congratulations Pat, you give us inspiration!!!!

CCSC Performs at ACA's Whale Fest
CCSC was invited to perform at the Whale Fest on the beautiful campus of the Arden Cahill Academy. Whale Fest is an organized school cultural experience for ACA students and parents. It is a day of educational fun with guest authors, artists, and student performances with an emphasis on our Louisiana heritage.
Arden Cahill Academy was founded in 1968 by Arden and Harry Cahill as a private academy dedicated to the interest of early childhood education. Their grades are from nursery to 8th grade.
The young ACA audience was warm and attentive. They especially enjoyed CCSC singing "I Will Survive", "Lazy Day" and of course "When The Saints Go Marching In."
Ms Emily Lapouble, CCSC's assistant director is a teacher at Arden Cahill Academy. Thank you Emily for introducing us to your school and thank you Mr. and Mrs. Cahill for inviting us. It was a pleasure entertaining your students.
