Recently, the Saint James School Advanced Band took a bus trip to The Arbors retirement community in Manchester to play for the residents. Students also mingled with the attendees and took turns introducing themselves, the grade they are in, and how long they have been playing for. Unbeknownst to us, until the students began talking to the attendees, one of the residents was a former employee of Saint James School many years ago! Many thanks to Mr. Corcoran and the Arbors for giving our students this great opportunity to give back to the community (click pictures to enlarge).
Select members of SJS band also played in New York City earlier this week and played at the Old Statehouse in Hartford today.
