The St. Pat’s Jazz Band under the direction of David Parker and Paul Hinton recently visited New Orleans, Baton Rouge and Lafayette. Their trip to where jazz, cajun and zydeco music trace their roots was a cultural experience that will not soon be forgotten. Students performed at Woodlawn High School in Baton Rouge as well as at The New Orleans Center for Creative Arts.
