Prior to the end of the school year, the Village Elementary School String Ensemble presented a mini concert for residents at The Arbors Assisted Living center. The student-musicians performed various patriotic songs in recognition of Flag Day while also honoring the many veterans that reside there. They also performed show tunes and classical pieces.  

“The performance was warmly received,” said teacher and Village string ensemble director Linda Carrella. “The residents thought the youth performers were wonderful and had an incredible level of musicianship.”   

Following the performance, the students mingled and enjoyed chatting with the residents, even getting a tour of the koi pond. Carrella thanked The Arbors residents and staff for allowing her students to visit and learn how important it is to always care about others.  

Accompanying the students was Village staff member Ruth Canzonieri, whose father resides at The Arbors. She remarked that her father, a former violinist, had a smile on his face throughout the performance.
