Mount Madonna’s middle school students were guests at the Senior Center at Morgan Hill’s Centennial Recreation Center Dec. 13 and shared their enthusiasm, sweet voices, smiles and open hearts to bring cheer and joy to attendees for a free holiday concert.

“I am thrilled to bring Mount Madonna’s middle school students to spread some joy and cheer through a holiday concert at the Morgan Hill Senior Center,” said Dr. Sean Boulware, Mount Madonna School music director. “It is so important and wonderful to reach out to our seniors and loved ones with a message of hope and peace. We must always remember our elders and veterans who made our world for us so that we could spread love and music to them. We hope to just give them a pause in this crazy time and bring some holiday cheer and familiar songs to lighten their moods and celebrate the holidays. This time of year is so important to connect as humans and share our spirits in song.”

Nestled among the redwoods on 375 acres, Mount Madonna School is located on Summit Road between Gilroy and Watsonville.
