The Love of Music ~ A Virtual Valentine Recital
In lieu of our Valentine outreach recital, which was originally scheduled at Maple Downs on February 14th this year, CNYAMT students connected with the residents there, and performed a Virtual Valentine Recital titled, "The Love of Music." Kim Farrell worked with the manager from Maple Downs to connect each student personally to a resident by sending them a Valentine's card, or dedicating their piece specifically to a resident on the video.
21 students performed on a wide variety of instruments: piano, strings, voice, and woodwinds. Each video was unique and fabulous in its own special way. Thank you to Robbie Padilla who collected all the videos and created a "heart-felt" recital and Kim Farrell for putting together a "lovely" program! And thank you also to the "loveable" teachers who participated and helped with their students' videos: Patricia DeAngelis, Dana DiGennaro, Kim Farrell, Susan French, Kathleen Freer, Bernadette Kessler, Neva Pilgrim, Gayle Ross, Mary Whittington, and Michelle Wilcox.
