On Monday, we landed in New Orleans. Some of us have made this journey before, others have not. While we are all here for a common purpose, each of us will take away something unique in addition to the shared experiences. In addition to sharing our stories, this blog will help us reflect on what we see, feel, and do.

This year marks the fifth anniversary of Berklee’s Gracenotes Sponsorship to New Orleans. Thanks to the generous support of the college, the Gracenotes Volunteer Committee is able to send a group of staff and faculty members to New Orleans to contribute to the rebuilding efforts, which continue even today–six years after floods resulting from Hurricanes Katrina and Rita devastated the city.
I am delighted to join my colleague, Leigh McLaren, in leading this year’s team. We leave Boston on Monday, May 9 and will be on-site with New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity from Tuesday, May 10 through Saturday, May 14. Over the course of next week, members of the team will post photos and more about our experience.
