CIAO! is a new string orchestra comprised of elementary, middle, and high school students as well as adult amateurs, directed by Jimmy Bergin. They rehearse weekly at St. John's and perform each month at Sweetbrook Care Center. The group has participated in two local outreach concerts this season: one that raised money for local food agencies; the other raised money to aid local families impacted by the closing of the North Adams Regional Hospital.
Holy Trinity Music School in Haiti has served thousands of students for over 50 years, and continues to do so in spite of the complete destruction of its facilities from the 2010 earthquake. We are very excited about joining with them to help keep music and hope alive in Haiti. All donations receieved at the concert will go to the school.
