It’s a wrap!!
Week 1 of Bravo Waterbury finished strong. Forty-five students who joined the WSO’s Bravo Waterbury program at the Children’s Community School completed their first week of chorus, percussion ensemble, yoga, and selected their string instrument of study. We have many enthusiastic, soon-to-be violinists, violists, and cellists ranging from First Grade to Eighth Grade. Students were so excited to get their own stringed instrument. Our wonderful teachers, Ms. Eva, Ms. Hannah, Mr. David, Ms. Keturah and Ms. Parkmond, had a great week thanks to the incredibly organized administration spearheaded by our Program Director, Cathy Scollon Ciresi. Heidi Stubner, Executive Director (Ms. Heidi), led the first two string classes as interim Artistic Director and Lead Teacher.
We are thrilled to see our students bring music to life in their own way on their own instruments. Stay tuned for our end of semester concert!
