Washington, CT - Eight Glenholme students showcased their musical talents in the annual Fall Vocal & Instrument Recital, held this year in the Glenholme Music Room. The living room style location was ideal for the intimate occasion shared with parents, friends and staff on Friday December 3.

Vocal performances included challenging lyrics from Broadway musicals to rock classics to the chart-topping songs of Christina Aguilera. The instruments included an enjoyable selection of guitar pieces and a rhythmic drum demonstration. The professionalism, pride, dedication and enthusiasm of each student was clearly displayed in their performance; an effort evidenced by the sheer smiles and applause of their family members, fellow performers, friends and staff.
