Kristin even took the time to sing Happy Birthday to one of our students T. Johnson, pictured here with A Christmas Carol musical director Sam Schieber and Education Director Michele Hillen-Noufer.

YPC Students performed for Kristin and listened to her amazing feedback. It was a rare and remarkable opportunity for our students who look up to and admire Kristin’s spirit and talent.
