On Sunday, April 30, Kingswood Oxford’s all male a cappella group, Crimson 7 and mixed group Outlook performed at the March of Dimes’ “March for Babies” walkathon at Rentschler Field.

Outlook sang the National Anthem to kickstart the event at 9:45 a.m. and then Crimson 7 sang a 15-minute set after walkers completed their first loop around the stadium around 10:30 a.m. The setlist was full of crowd pleasers like Oasis’s Wonderwall and Sam Cooke’s Bring It On Home To Me.

The following Crimson 7 members were featured as soloists: Ryan Albanesi ’17 of Avon, Charlie Coxon ’19 of Glastonbury, Zack Herz ’18 of Avon, Eryk Jones ’19 of West Hartford, David Marottolo ’18 of Wethersfield, Matthew Marottolo ’20 of Wethersfield, Connor O’Loughlin ’17 of West Hartford, and Varun Tankala ’18 of South Windsor. Additionally, Charlie Coxon ’19 said a few words as he and his sister Olivia Coxon ’19 both march annually at the event to raise awareness and support for aiding and preventing premature births as the two of them are NICU graduates.

Kingswood Oxford is the preeminent co-ed college preparatory day school in West Hartford, located just steps from Blue Back Square and West Hartford Center. It serves 502 students from 62 towns of Connecticut, western Massachusetts and China.
