A Celebration of Public Purpose

Screen Shot 2014-05-02 at 12.49.50 PMChase and Austin had the opportunity to present “A-Chord with Kids” at a “Celebration of Public Purpose” at Rye Country Day School earlier this week. The highlight of the evening were performances by Carver kids Grace and Isabella who sang a capella and Steven who did an amazing trumpet solo.

Upper School Principal Paul Wieman wrote about his observations:

“I had already known quite a bit about Chase Goddard’s and Austin Weber’s work with the students at Carver Center in Port Chester, translating their love of and talent for music into something of meaning for the students there. What I learned was how many RCDS students Chase and Austin had recruited to participate in their venture. Our stronger musicians surfaced again and again in their slide show, and it was really exciting to see how the energy of these two students had spread to so many of our students, and then, to hear three Carver Center students perform for the audience. What a wonderful moment!”
