Young Singers Brighten Residents' Day

Young people from the CREC Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts took time out of their school day to bring a smile to residents at a local assisted living facility. On Friday, May 26th, a group of students from the musical theater department sang, danced, and shared instrumental music at Avery Heights in Hartford. “Our residents are always so pleased to be in the presence of such talented young people” said Bill Englehart, Director of Operations. The afternoon became a memorable one for the kids and residents alike.

Almost a year ago, a group of students from the “Creativity in Community” class shared their visual art and musical talents with the Avery Heights community when they created a painting exhibit and performed music for the gallery opening. The exhibit is still on display and the residents still talk about it to this day.
