WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- On Friday, Dec. 5, the Chapel School choir sang for local seniors at the Wartburg Adult Care Community in Mount Vernon.
The choir, led by Chapel School music teacher George Heath, delighted the audience with their Christmas Carol-inspired performance. “The energy that came into the chapel when the children arrived was fantastic,” said one attendee. They sang a number of holiday songs including, “Silent Night” and “Christmas is Coming.”
The audience enjoyed hearing the children sing. “It is great to see the children enjoying themselves, too. I hope they will remember these times and think that seniors can have fun times like everyone else,” stated a Wartburg staff member. The Wartburg offers integrated, comprehensive senior care services. It provides a wide range of services to both residents and people in their own homes.
