Roosevelt Island Child School Legacy High School

The Child School Legacy High School on Roosevelt Island offers

...a unique academic/therapeutic community where children with learning disabilities can achieve their intellectual and emotional potential.
I received the following message from the Child School inviting all Roosevelt Island residents to a free community event showcasing performances by their students to be held on January 31 from 6-8PM at 566 Main Street.
From the Child School:
We are inviting all Roosevelt Island residents to a free performance. Please help us advertise. We're eager to get to know more residents.

Night of Music at The Child School
When: January 31, 2008 6:00-8:00pm
Where: 566 Main Street

Free, all Residents welcome

Student performers of all ages transform our gym into a concert hall. Our kids work for weeks to put on a good show. Last year's event included renditions of “Maple Leaf Rag,” Mozart’s “Ah vous dirai-je Maman,” Vanessa Carlton’s “A thousand Miles,” “Tequila,” “Pachelbel Canon,” spiritual hymns “Three Spirituals” and “I Have a Dream,” “The White Tiger Fight Song,” and “Ode to Joy.” One student even improvised by playing percussion on a chair which was transformed into an amazing drum!
