Students who play the violin, viola, cello, or bass won’t want to miss this incredible opportunity to work and perform with musicians of the Waterbury Symphony Orchestra. Young musicians will learn a varied repertoire from WSO professionals in small groups, focusing on fundamental techniques, ensemble skills, and musical interpretation. This project culminates in three in-school performances where participants play side-by-side with 20 WSO musicians. A minimum of one year of experience playing a string instrument and ability to read music is required. Space is limited per instrument.
