NEW ORLEANS – Today, the 2018 NOLA Foundation announced it is inviting students ages 7-17 years old from around the city to participate in a New Orleans Citywide 100 Voices Youth Choir program. From December 2017 to May 2018, 100 local students will be directed by performing artist and music educator Tonya Boyd-Cannon.
