After graduating in the spring from Annunciation School in
Arcadia, he spent his summer playing for the seniors during their
dinner hour Monday evenings. At first, he was nervous playing for the
group, he said, but he became more comfortable as the enthusiastic
seniors talked with him and thanked him after his performances.
Now that he is back in school, he returns to play for the group
whenever he can.
