Need Valentine’s plans? Spend it with Seidenberg, AHRC and Carnegie Hall

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching and you haven’t made plans. Sound familiar? No worries, this year Seidenberg College has you covered with a concert. Creative Musical Sessions along with the Individuals and Staff of AHRC New York City Adult Day Services and the musicians of the Weill Music Institute at Carnegie Hall will be stopping by Pace on February 14th to perform from 11:00 am to noon in the Multipurpose Room on the B-Level of One Pace Plaza. The performance will benefit the AHRC, which is dedicated to serving those with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The performers will include the professional musicians, AHRC staff who are musicians part-time and individuals served by the AHRC who were paired with musicians.

The concert comes out of a collaboration in the CIS102W class. Since 2007, CIS 102W students have organized productions in the Schimmel Theater that highlight the many social contributions of individuals with developmental disabilities. At this concert students will serve as escorts, guides and hosts to guests from the local community. They will also serve as advocates for the disability rights movement. The CIS102W course has been awarded the National Jefferson Award for Community Service, a prestigious national award.

The event is sponsored by the Community Outreach Programs and Services and the Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems. For more information contact lawlerj@aol.com
