Clients of Arcare North Shore were treated to a musical afternoon, thanks to the lovely talent of students from St Anthony’s Catholic College.
The students have been practicing for a live concert performance at the residence however due to the precautionary lockdown, the school decided to go ahead with a virtual version of their performance.
Making themselves comfortable in the theatre and lounge rooms, the clients got ready for a virtual classical performance as part of their Friday morning entertainment.
Featuring music from the violin, cello, piano and even a singing duo, the melodic tunes of St Anthony’s Catholic College echoed down the hallways.
‘Oh, that was amazing!’ Joyce Bioletti said.
Some of the students were performing from the comforts of their own home or their school classroom.
And clients were absolutely delighted to have the opportunity to enjoy a long-awaited concert while still social distancing.
‘That young girl singing was absolutely talented!’ June Geaney commented.
Many could not stop talking about it and the children were very happy to share their musical talents with us. And we look forward to hearing their classical concert in-person!
