Happy New Year! It's our first week back from winter break, and exciting things are already happening at New Community for Children!

New Community for Children was treated to a performance by National Symphony Orchestra violinist Glenn Donnellan! Glenn came to perform for our kids as part of NSO In Your Neighborhood 2013. This year's NSO community engagement initiative brings free performances and educational activities to U Street/Howard/Shaw.

The theme of Glenn's performance was Follow that Fiddle. The kids learned all about the history of the violin, also known as the fiddle. Glenn played a few songs and taught the kids how to make some really cool sounds with a fiddle. The kids were really excited when Glenn made the fiddle sound like a galloping horse!

This is just one of the many exciting things happening at New Community for Children.  We invite you to come see our kids in motion! Our one-hour tours take place twice a month at 4:30 pm.
