Jean and Bill McClelland brought a bit of nostalgia to Noble Horizons on November 4, with a performance entitled "At Long Last Love: Classics from the American Songbook." The concert of American popular songs from Broadway featured some of the great works by Jerome Kern, the Gershwins, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin and Stephen Sondheim. This is a return visit for the talented duo, both of whom have, in fact, appeared on the Great White Way.

The McClellands are members of the extended Noble family, Bill’s late mother having been a resident. Their appearance this time was their way of honoring Administrator Eileen Mulligan, who will retire in December after 43 years at Noble’s helm.
