After taking trips to New York, Italy, Disney World, and Austin, the choir is traveling to the city of jazz and beignets: New Orleans. Members are ready to experience the cajun culture from Nov. 15 to 18.

The choir normally takes an in-state trip ever other year, but the directors chose to do a “local” trip instead.

“New Orleans is close enough to be considered a ’local’ trip, and there is so much American music history in New Orleans,” choir director Cathy Koziatek said. “In addition, we’re making a stop at LSU. I try to plan a college visit for my students when we take a tour.”

Koziatek said the choir is excited to do a little bit of everything while in the Mardi Gras city.

We’re doing quite a bit– going on a swamp tour, ghost tour, making mardi gras masks and touring Mardi Gras World, visiting the Audubon Aquarium, taking a jazz dinner cruise on a steamboat, seeing the national tour of ‘The King and I,’ and of course sampling the local cuisine.”

The group will stop in Baton Rouge on their way to observe the LSU a-capella choir. The college’s a-capella choir is known for their talent and their performances in prestigious places around the U.S., including the LBJ Presidential Library.

The choir students will experience all the music and art New Orleans has to offer.

“I’m really excited about the jazz cruise and seeing ‘The King and I,’” junior Sylvia Hansen said.
