Forty students ranging in age from 8 to 17 from Westport, Weston, Fairfield and other surrounding communities will perform duets and trios including six hands at one piano, duets with two pianos, a violin duo, violin/viola duo, cello duo, string bass duo, and trumpet and flute duos with piano.
“Participation in the Student Chamber Music Concert is one of the most unique and rewarding opportunities a student will have at the Westport School of Music,” said WSM Director Sarah Miller. “Rehearsing and performing together in an ensemble teaches a young musician all about team work, individual responsibility, sensitivity and cooperation. Each ensemble also has the advantage of receiving coaching from other faculty members beyond their own weekly instructor and is a wonderful opportunity for parents and extended family to hear their child play with a group after working so diligently with other students.”
The concert is free of charge and open to the public. For more information, call the Westport School of Music at (203) 227-4931.
