A choral performance with ties to Arlington was held 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 22. The Special Needs Art Program (SNAP) was the host for its annual “Founders’ Fund” concert at Lexington’s Cary Hall, 1605 Mass. Ave., Lexington. 

This year’s program, titled “All You Need is Love," is to feature both SNAP members and the professional musical guest Elevate Vocals. Tickets at $30 per person can be ordered at or purchased at the door, organizers said.

According to an email sent to YourArlington by SNAP Treasurer Ron Rosenbaum, an Arlington resident,  SNAP provides chorus and art programs for neurodivergent children and adults living in Arlington, Lexington and surrounding communities. 

Rosenbaum wrote that this concert is the organization’s most important fundraiser each year. “SNAP participants form close personal relationships with both fellow participants and staff that encourage and support their continuing social-skills development.  The friendships they maintain through SNAP last throughout their lives,” he said. 

According to information on its website, SNAP serves developmentally disabled people, both children and adults, in 33  municipalities and in 1984 became a 501 (c) 3 registered nonprofit organization.
