MCLEAN - Caroline Brunner, a junior at McLean High School, looked on approvingly as a fellow band member performed a piece from Chopin on the piano.

Her concerts at Lewinsville Retirement Residences may be earning her a Girl Scout Gold Award — the Girl Scouts’ equivalent to the eagle scout award, but she’s also bringing smiles to the elderly each month with the help of her band mates.

She organized the Music Connection concert at Lewinsville Retirement Residences on Sunday with the help of May Al-Barzinji, 37, the resident services manager.

“It was amazing, Caroline was very professional for a young girl. She did an incredible job,” said Al-Barzinji.

Music Connection is a program Brunner started for her Girl Scout Gold Award. She aims to bring together the youth and the elderly in the community through music, and earn this distinguished honor through this service project.
