Common Council Meetings Beginning on a Different Note

GLENS FALLS, NY (December 19, 2022) – Last Tuesday night, the Glens Falls Common Council enjoyed a rousing start to their twice-a-month meetings.  Adele Squadere, a 6th grade student at Abraham Wing School in Glens Falls, helped launch a new program in the City of Glens Falls by singing the National Anthem –

“We all were absolutely delighted with Adele’s performance and I’m proud to be part of this new program” says Mayor Bill Collins.  “We have a solid history of promoting the arts in Glens Falls.   It is especially important to include the talented young people in a community that has so many gifted artists and musicians.  It provides our younger generation with an ability to learn and grow in a public setting while encouraging them to be part of the community.  We all felt she added some energy to what typically a formal setting is."

Squadere is one of the featured performers at the upcoming holiday concert “Christmas Soul” at Abraham Wing School.  The concert takes place on Wednesday, December 21st.

Squadere’s music teacher at Abraham Wing School is Teresa Dunn.  Dunn, who has over twenty (20) years of music teaching experience and directs the Amorak Youth Djembe Ensemble.  Dunn led the Ensemble at the Glens Falls Rockin’ Rotary 100-year Anniversary Celebration back on October 1st.

The City of Glens Falls is looking for other singers or performers who would like to sing the National Anthem or show a quick display of cultural dance or music.  If interested, please reach out to Kate Roos at
