The Cincinnati Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired made beautiful music during its annual recital, featuring performances by children who are blind or visually impaired.

Youngsters sang their favorite songs and performed duets. Other participants played keyboard, string and percussion instruments. Paula Jordan, music therapist at CABVI, was honored at her final recital before her retirement. She has been with CABVI nearly 20 years.

A group of music program alumni returned to honor Jordan with a sing-along. Now in high school and college, they received music therapy from her when they were toddlers. Several also have volunteered with CABVI’s music program.

The Charles H. Dater Foundation sponsors the annual recital and provides support for the music program. The Louis and Melba Schott Foundation and the Louise Taft Semple Foundation also provided support for CABVI’s music program in 2015.
