High school performers from Pleasantville's gave residents a special performance on Thursday.
"The group put on quite a show that included many songs from the hit T.V. show Glee as well as from various modern artists like Adele," said Atria Engage Life Director Ryan Linehan in a statement. "The residents really enjoyed the concert that lasted nearly an hour and a half."
Atria Resident Kathleen Salek said, “The kids did very well. It’s wonderful that the high school students volunteer their time and use their talents to give back to us seniors.”
Students in the performing program are mostly high schoolers from around the region.
"The students impressed our residents with their talent and professionalism," Linehan continued. "Our residents enjoy inter-generational events like these that feature music and include so many young people giving back to the community."
The annual affair is also something special for the students, according to Nell MacDonald, a teacher from The Academy of Music Arts.
“This concert is something that the students and their parents really enjoy each year," he explained. "It shows the students how easy it is to bring music to different groups of people for their enjoyment.”
Said Atria resident Evelyn Wexler, “I loved the show and I loved seeing all the high school kids.”
