Today we had the honor of welcoming to the House Chamber Madison’s pride and joy and Connecticut’s Champions, Daniel Hand High School’s ‘Vibe’ Show Choir. Their incredible performance left the entire House of Representatives standing in awe as they sang and played a compellation by Bruce Springsteen and John Lennon. I want to thank Director, Ron Soja for his dedication and vision. These student’s lives have been brightened by their experiences and successes in school – their talent serves as a great reminder to us all about the importance of music in education.
I would like to thank the parents, teachers, administrators and members of our community who have supported this group. Also, thank you to the Durham School Services Bus Company for their generous donation of bus service so the students could come up to Hartford today and perform at the State Capitol. This is a day that the legislature and the students will not soon forget.
