In September, Disney’s ABC and WTNH teamed up to donate the $5,000 Be Inspired grant to help enrich the lives of children and their families in our community.

Music Haven was happy to report to News 8 they had a great semester with 82 students who participated in different events like a flash mob at a local train station, a new Music 101 program and a Winter Performance party.
