As you enjoy the beautiful spring weather and prepare for the Memorial Day weekend, we have a very special treat to share with you.
The Fairfield County Children’s Choir (FCCC) has assembled a virtual choir with children from 16 local towns singing Simon and Garfunkel’s “Bridge Over Troubled Water.” The song, released 50 years ago, offers an uplifting message for these uncertain times and the video celebrates the power of children singing separately, but together.
FCCC dedicated the video to front-line health care workers and first responders who have indeed been our “Bridge Over Troubled Water” and to all the families who are suffering and have lost loved ones. At the end of the video, FCCC asks for donations to the Bridgeport Hospital Foundation’s COVID-19 Support Fund in memory of a recently deceased family member of one of their conductors.
Please share the link to their inspiring performance and the invitation to donate (which appears at the end) widely!
Thank you for your continued support. We wish you a safe and enjoyable holiday weekend.
