On Friday afternoon, Cheshire Home’s residents received a special visit from Colgate University’s all-female acapella group, the “Swinging Gates”. This group of talented women shared their beautiful voices with the crowd as they belted out an assortment of songs. We were all in awe of their performance.

The Swinging Gates have been singing and swinging since 1974 at Colgate University and across the East Coast. They bring a variety of musical material each year to Colgate University’s alumni functions, football games, an annual January tour (which we were lucky to be a part of!), local coffee shops and bars, and with the Colgate 13 at two annual concerts at Colgate.

Thank you to the Swinging Gates for giving our residents and staff the gift of music. We always enjoy a visit from this group and hope to hear them again soon!
