Spain Trip

Support Our Singers

Two participants from the Queen Ann Nzinga Center youth program and their chaperone will travel this July to the 21st annual Euroyeye ’60s-music festival in Gijon, Spain as backup singers to the legendary soul singer Betty Harris. Harris, who has performed all over Europe, Australia and the U.S., invited Aaleya Hardy, 18, of Bristol and Savannah Freitas, 16, of Plainville to accompany her after a year of mentoring them, along with three others from the youth arts enrichment program. Professional singer Dayna Snell, L.C.S.W., founder and executive director of the Queen Ann Nzinga Center, will also sing back-up and serve as the girls’ chaperone.

They need your help. Please help defray the $8,000 expense of air fare, ground transportation to and from the airport to the festival in the Austurias region of Spain, and food and lodging expenses for the four-day ’60s music festival.

The Queen Ann Nzinga Center offers programs to promote positive youth development among children of all races and abilities throughout Connecticut, using the arts as a vehicle for self-expression, discovery and confidence-building.
