Yard Goats Games Presents Opportunity for Local Music Students

Exavier Cotton Singing at Yard Goats GameThis past month, as the city of Hartford debuted its first AA minor league baseball team the Hartford Yard Goats, opportunity was presented to music students from the Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts. On opening day, Academy senior Exavier Cotton, Hartford, sang the national anthem to a packed Dunkin' Donuts stadium. Exavier was one of many local area students to have auditioned. He attends the Academy's full day program and will be attending Connecticut Central State University next year to further study music.

On Sunday, April 30, vocal students from the Academy sang God Bless America during the 7th inning stretch. The students were led by instructor Becky Ellis and were received well by all attending.
