The entire second year of CPIT’s National Academy of Singing and Dramatic Arts (NASDA) students took a trip to Westport recently for a concert that raised $3000 towards building homes in Mexico.

Bernard Voice instigated the performance opportunity for 20 of his classmates when his family decided to ask NASDA to help them raise money for charity work in Mexico. The result was a two-hour concert attended by some 170 people in Westport.

It was a bonding experience for the students as well as good professional experience, Bernard said. “We stayed at my house in Westport. There were 20 mattresses on the floor. The older people in the community provided us with meals. We loved it – the car trip, the concert, staying in Westport, everything!”

The group may have got a taste for performing together. “All of us would be keen to do it again.”
