Trombone Shorty and Mayor Landrieu visit Dibert!
Thursday December 9 was an exciting day at Dibert Community School. Mayor Mitch Landrieu and New Orleans trombone phenomenon Trombone Shorty visited the campus to talk about the importance of music and culture in New Orleans, and to connect that to math and language education! After the Mayor spoke, Trombone Shorty, Glen David Andrews and members of the Treme Brass Band were joined by Dibert middle schoolers Jazz, Revert and Revon in a second line out to the yard! Revert and Jazz are planning on applying to the NOCCA next year - they'll have some wonderful recommendations!
