MTA “Music Vs.” Club Brings Joy to Resident of Washington Heights

Last Monday, during their lunch, MTA’s “Music Vs.” club—a multi-school program that uses the arts as a way to connect students with elderly and veteran groups—ran a special event in Washington Heights. Six students, Dov Tuchman, Hillel Krief, Ari Englander, Yisrael Danesh, Zvi Goldstein and Jason Blatt (the MTA representatives of Music Vs.), visited an elderly woman who lives in Washington Heights and just needed someone to help brighten her day.

With a guitar, their voices and high spirits, the group sang and spoke with this woman, explaining to her who they were and how they were there to make her smile. As luck would have it, three of the students were members of the MTA chorus, and were able to demonstrate for their host a musical arrangement they had recently learned. The boys were grateful to have given back to their community.
