New Photos added!

Posted by Megan Gilles on April 29, 2011 at 3:45 PM Comments comments (0)

Check out the new photos that were added today from the recital that was held this morning at Bethesda Heritage Nursing Home Chapel.  Check under the photos section of the studio website. The students who performed did not have a scheduled day of school today so they took time out of their free day to perform for the residents of the nursing home.  All of the residents seemed to enjoy it really well.  A few parents were also able to come as well to the recital. 

The next recital will be at 4:15PM at Bethesda Heritage Nursing Home Chapel on May 6, 2011.

All are invited.
