Mark today as our first mangling of Cajun usage in describing the Midwinter Convention in New Orleans, January 6-11, 2015. There will be virtually no requirement to say it well, and if you’re doing it right, no one will hear to notice anyway.
You probably already know about the big stuff:
2015 Seniors Quartet Championship
2015 International Youth Chorus Festival
Big shows featuring top performers (and more surprises being added every day)
But did you know just how close to real New Orleans excitement we’ll be? “Let the good times roll!”
Zoom in this Google Map. Our headquarters, with all our lodging, shows and events, is in the Hilton New Orleans Riverside and adjoining Convention Center.
See that streetcar station on the property? That takes you right into the French Quarter. See Harrah’s Casino? Yup, that’s a scant two-block walk.
Take the streetcar in the opposite direction, and ride on down to Mardi Gras World. This museum and events center houses a workshop for building the dazzling floats that make a parade in New Orleans unforgettable. We’ll be holding a special get-together in its recreated plantation room, a moonlight setting straight off the bayou.
Fun? Over the top!
