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.

Cancer Crusaders Honor Jeannine Thibodaux
Jeannine Thibodaux, Associate Director of CCSC was one of twelve honored at The Cancer Crusaders Celebration of Life Luncheon at the Marriott New Orleans Hotel.
Jeannine was diagnosed with cancer two years ago. She had surgery and chemotherapy. . Through this troubled time, her family and friends rallied behind her with support and prayers. But Jeannine was the inspiration. She didn't miss a beat. She threw herself into her family, work and chorus. Many times she came to rehearsal, cheerful, smiling directing and teaching choreography, yet no one knew how exhausted she was from the treatment. She is now cancer free.
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!
