Aidan Peterson '24 Plays Plays Porch Concert

Shipley eighth grader Aidan Peterson is living Shipley's mission of Compassionate Participation in the World. 

Peterson, an accomplished musician and member of Shipley's Jazz Band and Honors Combo, dedicates most of his free time serving others through music. He plays Taps at military funerals and visits nursing homes, just to name a few.

Since many of his concerts have been canceled and he is no longer able to visit the many organizations he volunteers with due to the COVID-19 regulations, Peterson found a new way to spread cheer to others. He recently played a "front porch" concert for an elderly couple in Bryn Mawr. 

"Music is my gift and now more than ever I can use it to bring light, joy, hope, and smiles to people," Aidan Peterson said to 6ABC.
