Jay Nash Performs Benefit for HES #HartlandVT #VT #vtarts #vtlivemusic



April School vacation began in a special way for the students of Hartland Elementary School, Jay Nash a nationally known singer/songwriter who lives in Hartland, performed a benefit concert to raise money for renovations to improve the All Purpose (AP) room for drama, music and sports events.

Friday was the last school day before April vacation and about 70 children attended the rehearsal before heading home to collect their family members for the show.
The AP room was packed for the 6:30 start and the younger ones were running around burning off some steam.
School Principal Jeff Moreno welcomed all the family and friends of HES and introduced Nash.
During his set, his daughter Mackenzie, who attends the HES Kindergarten Class and her friends "rushed" the stage for a front row seat.


The Grand Finale featured most of the student body singing along with Nash.
