UMD Announces Third Year of Collington Program
IMG_2088 V2.jpeg


In partnership with the Collington Life Plan Community (Collington) and the University of Maryland School of Music, Collington Life Plan Community (Collington) is hosting two new interns to participate in the 2019-2020 student artists in residence program.  Natalie Groom and IeSeul Yoen will be living with residents of the retirement community and are currently scheduling student and faculty groups to perform and speak at Collington.  In exchange for room and board, the two students perform regularly scheduled concerts, teach educational programs and collaborate with residents.  A committee of Collingtonians coordinates with Natalie and Ieseul opportunities for the community choir, jazz ensemble, The Kollington Kats and Sunday afternoon concert series. 


As Collington bids fond adieu to the second year SOM interns, Natalie and Iesuel are poised and eager to become immersed in the community.  Their first few concerts have been met with great enthusiasm.

Both interns are eager to host concerts and create programs to enrich not only the seasoned adults at Collington, but themselves as well.
