NEW ORLEANS

We are bypassing the tourist attractions and stepping into the heart of New Orleans.

SING YOUR HEART OUT

SINGING

Over the course of the holiday you will enjoy many hours of expert-led voice coaching and singing in a choir. We will sing from the heart and embrace the true power of the voice whilst soaking up the sounds and sights of this magical city.
