Experience Kurn Hattin
WESTMINSTER — Guests had a chance to experience what makes Kurn Hattin such a special place at Spring Get Acquainted Day on April 5. Traveling from New York City to attend the event, alumna Aaliyah Olmo, Class of 2010, gave a stirring speech about the lasting impact Kurn Hattin had in her life. It was at Kurn Hattin that 11-year-old Aaliyah first discovered her talent and passion for music. "Lisa got gears in me rolling that I didn't know I had," she said of Lisa Bianconi, Kurn Hattin's Music Director. Aaliyah then performed a song, accompanying herself on the ukulele, one of the many instruments she plays.
Kurn Hattin's Get Acquainted Day also featured musical performances by the Kurn Hattin Jazz Ensemble and Star-Spangled Heritage Tour Choir, a film and Q&A session, student-led tours of the school and cottages and a lunch.
