This week, music teacher Steve Pixley and OMPA Community Service Chair Lyn Goldman brought students to the Life Care Center of Nashoba Valley in Littleton for the first of two community service performances. The performance included a mixture of band pieces as well as an individual vocalist. In addition to sharing their talents, students had an opportunity to socialize with the very receptive and appreciative residents. Afterwards, students reflected on the various benefits of this experience, including cross-generational social interaction, preparing pieces for a meaningful goal, and gaining experience presenting themselves formally and elegantly in front of an audience of strangers. Accolades to our students as they nurture the world around them!
This performance is part of an ongoing effort to create an awareness at Oak Meadow, both among the students and among the parents, for community service. The next nursing home concert will be at Westford House on April 15th.
