CCSC Having A Ball At Region 10 Summer Area School
Eighteen CCSC members attended Region 10’s Summer Area School in Baton Rouge under the direction of Ms. Janie Macchiaroli, Education Coordinator. There were physical warm ups lead by CCSC’s own Jeannine Thibodaux. Janie taught vocal skills and Region 10’s 2014 song “Fly Me to the Moon.”
A delicious lunch was served by the host chorus, Baton Rouge Chorus. Three acts from CCSC were in the Karaoke/Lip-sync contest. Congrats to the chicks who will be performing their rendition of “In the Mood” at Fall Regional and Sheryl for placing 2nd in the Karaoke contest and our own Tina Turner (Debbie) for providing the most entertaining Karaoke act! CCSC would like to thank Ms. Janie Macchiaroli for a wonderful day of singing and learning and to Baton Rouge Chorus for hosting. click her to see more pictures

CCSC Presents Check to Leukemia and Lymphoma Society
Crescent City Sound Chorus donated a check to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society-Louisiana/Mississippi Chapter. The money was a portion from their Annual Show which was held at Sacred Heart Academy Nim’s Theater in October. Ms. Mary Catherine Moffett, Patient Services Manager and Ms. Alberta Stoker, Executive Director accepted the check for the center.
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!!!!
Members of the Crescent City Sound Chorus of Sweet Adelines International voted Beverly Traub into the Sweet Adeline Wall of Fame. This honor is given to a member of the chorus who is a seasoned Sweet Adeline, who has stepped up time and again during her years as a chorus member to distinguish herself as a dedicated member. She works hard to accomplish goals for the good of her chorus resulting in a recognizable difference. She is always available, working tirelessly for her chorus and sets a positive example of what a Sweet Adeline should be. Beverly sings tenor. She is on the Music Team, Tenor section leader, Marketing, Ways and Means committee, Sets and Props designer for shows, Assistant Costume Designer, has served on the Chorus Board and is the tenor in Fleur de Lis Quartet.
Her picture will be posted at the Sweet Adeline Region 10 Competition with the other 23 winners from that district. This year’s competition is in Houston in the beginning of April.
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!!!!
