Crescent City Sound Chorus Invites You!!
Meet Our Newest Quartet--Changed 4 Good
Wacky Galactic Tours
Entertained and Thrilled Audiences
CCSC's first song under the direction of Mary Beth McMurray, "Time Warp" captured the audiences and didn't let them go untill the final curtain call. The Original musical comedy was out of this world. Susan Deckert, local actress, played the tour guide and special guests Sweet Adeline International quartet, Live It Up from the Woodlands, TX entertained the audience. The students in Chalmette High School Jazz Band was no stranger to CCSC. They have performed in many of their shows. The audience is always amazed by the talent of these young musicians. In the final act, the chorus was dressed as Zombies of all kinds and one angel. The curtains opened to singing and dancing to "Monster Mash", soon followed by "Born to Be Wild." The finale was "Thriller." It's hard to say who had the most fun, the audience or Crescent City Sound.

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.
