Berklee College of Music is sponsoring a group of employees to go to New Orleans and work with Habitat for Humanity on a project to build a Musician's Village in the Upper 9th Ward!
How cool is that?
Harry Connick, Jr., Branford and Ellis Marsalis came up with the idea to build 70 homes and a Music Center.
Many of my colleagues applied for this sponsorship I was fortunate enough to be one of the ones chosen! Yesterday, I met the other 7 people who are going and I am excited! We head down in June and will be there for a week.
Check out this video to get a sense of what we will be doing:
