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.
