SUMMER STRINGS PROJECT

GRADES 6-12 + ADULTS • WATERBURY SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

Students who play the violin, viola, cello, or bass will have the opportunity to work and perform with musicians of the Waterbury Symphony Orchestra. Musicians in grades 6-12 will learn a varied repertoire from WSO professionals in small groups, focusing on fundamental techniques, ensemble skills, and musical interpretation. This project will culminate in a Side By Side performance by participants and WSO musicians. A minimum of one year experience playing a string instrument and the ability to read music is required. Space is limited per instrument.

This program is funded in part by The Maurice Sendak Foundation and the Ion Bank Foundation.
