Exit 43 Performs Inspiring Sing-Along Tunes
On Friday night, Exit 43 entertained energetically. Executive Director Anne-Marie Cannata reports, "we had a small audience, but those who were here had a great time! One regular patron said he was at home, nice and comfortable, but decided to come to the show. He said it was 'well worth coming out for.' Three people joined as new members, and folks came from all over the state--Derby, Burlington, Meriden, Fairfield, and Westport."
Exit 43's sing-alongs got people singing and clapping. The group played a song for the solstice and other familiar folk and folk-rock song, including their version of Richie Havens' "Freedom," which generated lots of energy.
