Holiday cheer to Glacier Hills Ret. Community

The violin and viola students of Wendy Zohar brought spirited holiday music to a packed wheelchair crowd at an Ann Arbor retirement community on Dec. 10, 2019. The retirees responded with singing and clapping and throaty “Bravos”. Their next scheduled activity was dinner, but they wouldn’t go until we played the last note of our last piece, the Twinkles.
