SIDE BY SIDE

GRADES 6-ADULT • WATERBURY SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

ASAP!’s annual Side By Side concert is a rare opportunity for youth musicians to perform side by side with Waterbury Symphony Orchestra (WSO) members in front of a live audience. Side By Side is the culmination of our Interdistrict Strings Program, a music intensive which pairs experienced youth musicians with professional WSO members to learn classical pieces, gain a deeper understanding of their instrument, and practice playing in concert with one another.

ASAP! makes Side By Side accessible to school children and administrators by bringing this portable concert to schools upon request. In this interactive educational experience, the WSO music director engages the audience in movement, rhythm, and more while students and their WSO counterparts perform for their peers.

The Side By Side concerts are made possible by a grant from Woodbury Bethlehem Community Music Foundation. ASAP! thanks it’s Side By Side event hosts:
