Community Performance Arcadia Water Retirement Village
Children from our Simply Strings Orchestra and Guitar Ensemble along with our Performance Choir showed courage and bravery and shared their musical talents with a large group of very appreciative community of elderly residents. Residents joined in on vocals as the guitar ensemble performed ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ and ‘Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star’ and many feet were seen tapping and lip syncing could be seen around the room during the other performances. All children, staff and residents enjoyed sharing their experiences after the performance and we were invited back any time we would like to visit. One resident in particular joined in the fun and attended their first social event after several years of living in the community. He was overjoyed with the performance and took the time to wave off the busses as we left to return to school.
Congratulations to all students and teachers involved on their wonderful performances your excellent representation of Challis.
