Brett Adams, former music director at Elmhurst High School was pleased to receive a call from members of his Elmhurst show choir requesting an opportunity to perform together again.
“The kids are now split up, but have missed each other and just wanted to sing together again,” said Adams.
As is tradition, every Christmas since 2003, the Elmhurst Show Choir has visited Kingston Residence, an assisted living community at 7515 Winchester Road, to share the music of Christmas with their residents. And this year, even though the school has officially closed, was no exception. About half the members of the original show choir performed a 30-minute medley of treasured Christmas carols on Friday, December 17th at 7:00 p.m.
“We were thrilled to have the Elmhurst Choir at Kingston to entertain again,” stated Executive Director Erin Floyd. “The fact that the kids asked to come back speaks volumes of their commitment to our residents. This group has always visited us not only at Christmas but every spring as well. We welcomed them back to Kingston with open arms.”
Kingston Residence is an Assisted Living community near Waynedale with private apartments featuring full time nursing support, an outstanding survey history and a staff of long term caring employees.
