Goal of the event: 
Uniting international students with the local elderly population through music and bridging the generation gap – fighting discrimination through education.
Short description of the event: 
We have organized 3 rehearsals prior to holding the concert.
The actual concert took place at a retirement home located in Maksimir (Zagreb) where the audience consisted of its residents, friends of the performing students and ESNers, and consisted of the international students performing classic Christmas songs.
After the performance, the residents had the opportunity to communicate and get to know the international students on a more personal level.
Did you cooperate with another organisation?:

Duration of the volunteer activity: 
Number of international students: 
Number of "locals" involved: 
Number of ESNers involved: 
The activity went as planned with better reactions from the residents of the retirement home than initially predicted. Everyone that was participating in the concert, whether by watching or performing, was overwhelmed with happiness throughout the entire performance.
The locals were thrilled with the performance and requested some songs to be performed once more and the international students were content, asking for more events like these so the goal was definitely met.
