UNION, NJ –Talent was on full display last week as over 40 students participated in Hannah Caldwell School’s Talent Show, with singing, dancing, musical instrument performances, and even a comedian.

“This is a special performance because the children are in control.  All of the acts in the show were prepared outside of school by the students,” said music teacher Bernadette Burke.

Burke said she was happy to reinstate the talent show last year, her first at Hannah Caldwell.

“As the music teacher, I am in charge of preparing the students for their Winter and Spring concerts," said Burke.  "For the talent show, all I really do is give the kids a venue to perform and run the sound.”
