As in prior years, the Village Elementary School string ensemble performed for residents of The Arbors Assisted Living in Jericho prior to the end of the school year.

Students opened with the national anthem and continued with a variety of patriotic songs, show tunes and classical arrangements. Many of the residents who are military veterans showed their appreciation for the patriotic selections.
    
“It’s miraculous, the way these youngsters play,” said one Arbors resident. Following the concert, students mingled, chatted and played games with the residents and visited the facility’s koi pond.

“It was a wonderful, multi-generational experience for everyone,” said Village string teacher Linda Carrella, who directed the performance and promised the students would return again next year to perform.
