Students perform for Silvergate residents

FALLBROOK – Residents at Silvergate Fallbrook were treated to a special holiday musical experience last week when a lively group of children from Bonsall Virtual Academy visited to sing classic Christmas carols and spread their own brand of festive cheer.

“We were delighted to host this heartwarming performance for our residents,” said Carie Hensley, Activities Director at Silvergate Fallbrook. “Their renditions of holiday favorites like ‘Frosty The Snowman’ and ‘Jingle Bells’ filled the room with the delightful sound of children’s voices at Christmas time. These kids brought sheer joy to all of the residents who joined us for this special show.”

The children worked together prior to performing at Silvergate to hand make holiday cards for each resident who attended the performance. The event was specifically designed to give the children a unique opportunity to interact socially with seniors while at the same time giving the seniors a chance to celebrate the holidays around the vibrancy and voices of local youth.”

“These kids practiced all the songs together and really got into the spirit with the seniors when they performed,” said Tina Calabrese, who serves as principal of the school the children attend. “It was sweet to see the residents light up as the kids sang familiar holiday carols and then be so touched by all of the special cards they passed out.”
