Malloy to visit students performing at Olympics
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Gov. Dannel Malloy plans to visit a high school jazz group in Hartford that is heading to London to perform at the Olympics.
Malloy is scheduled to visit the Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts on Monday to give a send-off to the Real Ambassadors at one of their final rehearsals for the 2012 Summer Olympic Games.
The Real Ambassadors, a high school jazz group from the academy, was one of a select few groups asked to perform at the games.
The community is invited to attend the rehearsal, which will be held at 15 Vernon St., from 1-2 p.m. The school is asking for a $10 donation from those attending to help cover the costs for the students to perform in London.
The academy is an inter-district magnet high school.
