Mardi Gras!

Roots of Music made their debut at the Mardi Gras parades this week. The band had the crowds cheering along the sidewalk and neutral ground for the Pygmalion and Alla parades.

The students have been anticipating the Mardi Gras season for months and once they hit the pavement they never skipped a beat. And they looked as good as they sounded in their new black and gold uniforms. All along the parade route we heard: "Which band is that?" "Where's that band from?"

After the parade, the students, teachers, and parent volunteers were beaming with pride. And exhausted. Be sure to look for Roots of Music at the Muses, Bacchus, and Orpheus parades, and contact us anytime about donations or enrollment.

Congratulations!! Any chance of posting a video clip of a future parade performance? (Not as good as being in New Orleans to see it live but still.....)
