Watch: Venezuelan children’s choir sings to the elderly

Los Niños Cantores de La Casita
Small voices and big spirits lit up the Society of St Vincent de Paul Home for the Aged in Arima. Los Niños Cantores de La Casita, a choir comprised of Venezuelan children, performed lustily for the elderly.
Aged between four and 12 years old, the children saw the performance as a way to give back to the kindness shown to them during their time in Trinidad. Director of La Casita, Andreina Briceno-Brown, said they wanted to spread some Christmas cheer.
“They are very happy and very grateful to be here doing positive things,” she said.
The choir, a mere three months old, has achieved quite a lot. The older students learn to play instruments and read music, while the young ones are the voices. “What we’re looking at is to give some joy, some happiness, blessings for these Christmas parties, especially for the aged. People don’t always come to see them, but our kids really wanted to give back something,” she shared.
“The senior citizens give a lot to the country, so we came to give a little bit back,” she continued.
The children will be performing at a few other locations for the season, including the Arima General Hospital.
