  • 2018 a Cappella Pitch Camp, a Successful First Year!

  •  Fri, Jun 22 2018

    Thanks to a generous grant from the New Orleans Hash House Harriers, made possible by their yearly Red Dress Run event,  Crescent City Sound Chorus was able to host our first Young Women in Harmony Pitch Camp!

    Pitch Camp was a fun, one-week workshop that introduced participants to the Sweet Adelines International program called “Young Women in Harmony."  This educational program targeted young women ages 12 to 26 and offered over 16 hours of music education, culminating in a free community performance.  

    The program had 16 participants from all over the New Orleans area.  The participants were enthusiastic and engaged in the education process.  With donated facilities from Delgado and the University of New Orleans, and the NOH3 grant, Pitch Camp was able to provide an excellent, diverse educational experience.

    In preparation for Pitch Camp, CCSC completed an aggressive educational outreach campaign to over 90 schools and private groups.  This included personal visits to many schools and a marketing campaigns to introduce our organization to the community as well as to music educators.  We offered in-class music education programs as part of the outreach.  We were able to give a class at Sacred Heart Academy this Spring.

    Within just 48 hours of posting the Pitch Camp performance on Facebook live, (Click Here to view it ) there were over 800 views and the post reached over 1450 people.  That is a very strong start from a small group for our first time running this event!  

    Based on our Pitch Camp success and the enthusiasm for this music education program, we intend to pursue making Pitch Camp an annual event!  

    CCSC would like to thank all those involved with Pitch Camp including, parents, participants, educators, NOH3, Delgado, University of New Orleans, and of course, our Pitch Camp committee and CCSC members and staff that worked so hard to bring this educational program together!

    See you next Summer!
