New Orleans Day #1
We got up at 3am this morning, after a long week of performances and midterms, to start our New Orleans Experience. We arrive in Louisiana safe and sound around 9am, and started our week off right by stopping to get beignets at Morning Call the world famous bakery.
Around 12pm we arrived at Hands On New Orleans, the volunteer housing facility we are staying at! We got settled into our bunk rooms, and started to unpack.
We ended our night with an Orientation here at HONO, as well as three hours of team meetings in preparation for our master-classes at NOCCA on Monday, and our after school program at the YMCA.
