It’s a family affair!

Five were born blind and all excelled in music to a greater or lesser degree. All five of the blind siblings attended both the North Carolina School for the Blind (NCSB) in Raleigh, NC and the Ohio State School for the Blind (OSSB) in Columbus, OH. They participated in the various music offerings of both schools. They are all graduates of OSSB.
