The Magic of a Smile
Volunteers and professional performer David LaDuca, returned to ECC to produce two amazing concerts showcasing our students’ musical talents. Mr. David brought the students to new heights at the Treasure Cay Community Center on March 1st 2019 and the Hopetown Harbour Lodge on March 3rd, 2019. All the songs and dances were around smiling including Broadway hits and popular music. David was assisted by our talented graduate Ronel Escarment and our sound team, Demario Stuart, Quadray Curry and Ranard Davis and were also assisted by a group of high school volunteers from Toronto land their sponsors. It was an exceptional time for all and we were very proud.
