Buffalo, N.Y. (WKBW) - It's the sounds of the season.
“We like to give back to the community. Not only among our school but use the talent we have as a choir and share it with other people,” Student Lindsay Andrews said.
Kenmore East High School Select Choir is giving the gift of music to hospitals across Western New York. We caught up with the group at Roswell Cancer Institute.
“It's really great that we have the opportunity to give them an escape for the problems give them hope,” Andrews said.
Virginia Brown is a patient at Roswell and stopped to get a cheerful earful.
“I think it gives us hope to continue. I enjoy the music and we need more of it,” Brown said.
Student Alexander Kane said it is all about the patients.
“This gives to them some hope. They may be having a hard time with Christmas because of their diseases but for us to come out to the community to give the holiday cheer when they are in desperate times it just feels very heart warming,” Kane said.
Hope is the theme surrounding this Christmas concert. At Roswell they don't stop at the holidays. They have a Music in Lobby program every day. More than 100 volunteers come out to give more than 1300 performances a year. As for the students they say music can make all the difference.
“Music is really inspiring and that’s important,” Andrews said.
