Washington, CT -
Audience participation and excitement were at an all-time high during Round Three of Glenholme Idol on Thursday, December 1st in the Glenholme Center for the Arts. Seven talented group and solo acts performed their best "One Hit Wonders" for judges Senor Moeremans, Mr. Greenlees, and head judge Matt, cheered on by an enthusiastic audience of students and staff. To increase audience input, the student with the highest percentage from each cottage also scored the acts, and student and judge scores were combined to determine which acts would make it to the next round!

In addition to the performances shown at the left, Ben, as a solo artist, performed "Cold" by Crossfade and Katrina delivered a wonderful rendition of "What's Going On" by 4 Non Blondes.

At the end of this triple elimination round, only four acts remained. A big congratulations to Griffin, Rachel, Jake & Ben, and Aaron & Ian for advancing to Round Four.

In the words of Matt DeLong, Glenholme's Arts Director, activities such as Glenholme Idol allow special needs students "to come to know themselves better, to step outside of themselves to look back inside, and to develop social skills that will help them to build safe and healthy relationships with themselves, with their environment, and ultimately, with others. At Glenholme, artistic expression is embraced, respected, and nurtured. Students may take chances, learn, and grow in a safe and supportive arena, where their creative efforts and successes are actively celebrated."

The Glenholme School is a therapeutic boarding school for young people who are often considered fragile and complex, diagnosed with Asperger's, ADHD, PDD, OCD, Tourette's, depression, anxiety as well as learning differences.
