Community Partner: Down Syndrome of Louisville


December 18, 2021

About Session

From Founder and Producing Artistic Director Jackie Vanderbeck: Our sessions with Down Syndrome of Louisville are a gift to the heart. We love to connect with our “Kindness Warrior” community through music, sharing joyfulness through storytelling.

Our special guests today were cast members from the John W. Engeman Theatre’s production of “White Christmas.” Darien, Meadow, Aaron and Daniel shared some Irving Berlin favorites from the show, as well as wonderful songs of their own choosing. They were joined by Maggie, Julia, and me, adding holiday classics, Disney gems, and an interactive closing number that had as all up and dancing together.

I am full of gratitude for our SFYS community, which has grown to include so many wonderful organizations. Special thanks to Carly at DSL for nurturing our partnership, and to all the artists who make this work possible. May today’s joy carry us into the new year!
