CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — Morning Pointe of Chattanooga at Shallowford residents welcomed a serenading visit from string ensemble “At First Sight” — a sight-reading “boot camp” group for music students.

The camp youth focus on chamber music and practice sight reading while making new friends during weekly meetings at Southern Adventist University.

The students performed for the residents at the assisted living community, impressing their audience with a performance that had been practiced for only a few days.

Morning Pointe invites kids and teens to visit the seniors, as the two groups — young and old — share their talents with one another while embracing the benefits of intergenerational programming as part of the life enrichment program.
