INDIAN LAKE, NY: You won’t want to miss this amazing and inspirational concert which may “burn down the house” with its eclectic array of music featuring blues, rock, country, and pop favorites on Saturday, February 23, 2019, at the Indian Lake Theater from 7 to 9 p.m. The concert, which is presented by the Town of Indian Lake’s Snocade Committee and Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts is the closing event for the town’s week-long winter carnival celebration.
FLAME, a group from upstate New York made up of 10 people with developmental and physical disabilities, including autism, Down syndrome, and blindness, is capturing the world’s attention. The band from Lexington Center, Fulton County Chapter, NYSARC, Inc. located in Gloversville, is changing the world through music. They are a phenomenon that inspires people and changes the way the general public views people with disabilities. People of all ages and backgrounds connect with this special rock band. Parents are often overcome with emotion watching FLAME, seeing that it’s possible to that their child will achieve great things and, even more importantly, have a fun and fulfilling life.
“I saw FLAME several years ago at the Indian Lake Theater with my family and was blown away. You won’t believe the lead vocal and guitar player was labeled autistic and emotional disabled at the age of three. She is an amazing performer, just as the the rest of the band. On a video on their website they state, ‘it is not about our disabilities, it is about our abilities.'”, says Christine Pouch, the Executive Director of the Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts. “People of all ages will enjoy this concert and will be dancing in the aisles.”
