The Berkshire Hills Music Academy Performance Troupe, made up of 8 student musicians, will provide a musical program that highlights the talent and abilities of young people with disabilities. Their repertoire includes current pop favorites, Broadway hits, classics, original music and more. In addition to musical numbers, a few students will share their personal stories – what it was like growing up with a disability, how they’ve overcome challenges, and how music has played an important role in their lives. The program will be introduced by the Director of Music, Karen Carreira, who will share the story of how Berkshire Hills began and how the music-infused curriculum motivates students to learn independence skills and reach their vocation goals.
Presented by Karen Carreira, Director of Music & Music Vocation, Tom Slowick, Troupe Performance Manager, Dirk Litzner, Troupe Performance Manager
