Emily Lapouble Receives Wall of Fame Award
Members of the Crescent City Sound Chorus of Sweet Adelines International voted Emily Lapouble into the Sweet Adelines 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 and sets a positive example of what a Sweet Adeline should be. Emily sings tenor, is an certified assistant director and sings in the competing Jazz Ma Tazz Quartet.
Her picture will be posted at the Sweet Adeline Region 10 Competition with the other 21 winners from the district. This year’s competition is in Houston at the end of March.
Crescent City Sound Gives Back To The Community
CCSC donated a check to the New Orleans American Heart Association. The money was a portion from their Annual Show which was held at St. Martin Episcopal’s Theater. The check was presented at the Hyatt Regency Hotel by Ms Debbie Mora, show chairman and Ms. Kitty Warner, team leader to Ms. Jessica Gremillion, Vice President of the AHA.
Congratulations To Two Outstanding CCSC Members
Both Emily Lapouble and Jeannine Thibodaux received their Director Certification from Sweet Adelines International.The Director Certification Program (DCP) is an educational program designed to provide additional training and further develop skills for Sweet Adelines International directors, potential directors, and musical leaders. The program provides opportunities to validate the skills and knowledge required to direct a Sweet Adelines chorus. Conducting, Vocal Production, Rehearsal Planning are just a few of the requirements needed to receive this certification.
CCSC is the only Region 10 chorus with four certified directors, Jeannine and Emily now proudly join the ranks with Mary Beth McMurray, chorus director and Tina Kneisler, assistant director.
CCSC Chooses Extraordinaire
Members of the Crescent City Sound Chorus of Sweet Adelines International voted Sue Englebert Sweet Adeline Extraordinaire. This honor is given to a member of the chorus who has been dedicated and works for the good of the chorus and makes a difference.Sue is retired from US Coast Guard. Because of her travels she was lucky enough to be in six SAI choruses throughout the U.S. from Seattle to Maine, D.C. to St. Louis. She has been on music staffs, chorus boards and in two quartets. She competed on the International stage three times. Sue became involved in Sweet Adelines because she likes performing on stage but the harmony both in the music and its members has kept her an avid champion of the organization. She has been a member of SAI for 26 years.Sue is presently CCSC’s Membership/Ways and Means committee chair.
Our director is the wonderful Mary Beth McMurray, who inspires us to reach new heights with each performance. We can be heard throughout the year, singing for civic and charitable organizations, private groups, churches, community events, and fundraisers.
We love to entertain by putting on our own musical events each year for the community, our friends, and families. We send "singing telegrams" on Mother's Day, and in an effort to stay committed to singing and performing at the highest level possible, we compete each year in a regional contest.
Please contact us to sing at your next special event!
