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.

Crescent City Sound Chorus was awarded two medals at The Sweet Adeline Region 10 competition held in Houston. They received third place in Division AA and fourth place overall out of seventeen choruses. Dressed as “dumb blond” prisoners, they sang two parodies. The front row danced and skip jumped their “ball and chains” to the audience’s delight. They performed under the direction of Mary Beth McMurray.
Quartet JazzMaTazz received the Most Improved quartet.
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.
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!
