Singer-songwriter Charlie Puth and Ernie Boch Jr. stopped by the Josiah Quincy Upper School in Boston to celebrate the new piano and keyboards that were made possible by a grant by Music Drives Us, a charitable organization that Boch founded in 2006. Puth appeared at the school on behalf of the VH1 Save The Music Foundation, a national nonprofit that supports instrumental music education programs in schools across the country (and Boch serves on the VH1 foundation’s board). Puth is no stranger to Boston — he graduated from Berklee College of Music in 2013 — and made quite an impression on the students. We heard that when Puth found out that it was one student’s birthday, he played the piano and led the room in a spirited sing-along of “Happy Birthday.” . . .

Meanwhile, in Newton, Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito visited a state and local government class at Lasell College and spoke to students about her political career, the upcoming election and ballot questions, and the administration’s efforts to combat opioid addiction. . . .
