Conn Men Acapella Group at MSP

On March 6, 2020 the University of Connecticut's premier acapella group "Conn Men" visited the Middle School of Plainville to present a concert to the student body.  The concert included a variety of well-known pop songs from yesterday and today.  The concert session featured a number of positive and supportive messages from the university students challenging students to consider their future, interests, careers, and goals while keeping active music making as an integral part of their lives. The Conn-Men were founded in 2001 and have performed around the country including for the governor of Connecticut and at the White House in Washington DC.  Kyle Smith is a member of the "Conn Men" as well as a graduate of Plainville Community Schools.  In addition to leading a solo, Kyle gave a demonstration on beatboxing and discussed how music was a constant in his life and has helped bring success and enrich his life while pursuing an academic career.  The "Conn Men" performance was made possible by a generous grant from the Elizabeth Norton Trust Fund.
