Students in the Eastern Greenbrier Marching Band have been missing being able to perform and share their music. Meanwhile, so many of our community’s elders are missing human contact as they work to remain safe. So, the marching band kicked off the holiday season last year by performing for residents of the Brier Rehabilitation Center.
Socially distanced well away from their windows, students played music from the grounds toward the open windows of residents. Kids were reminded of the joy of sharing music, and in the words of Katie Windon, an employee at the Brier, “these past seven months have been such an emotional roller coaster… but today was one of those days where we got to see them be happy again!”
