Amy Jones, a violist from the Waterbury Symphony, conducted a master class for Strings students from Watertown High School and Swift, who were auditioning for the Northern Region High School and Middle School orchestras. The students performed their audition solos for Ms. Jones, and she gave feedback and modeled technical skills for them. This was a wonderful experience which will help the students in their auditions and inspire them in their practice throughout the year. The master class was made possible through the generosity of the Watertown Foundation, which has given the Music Department a grant for vocal and instrumental master classes at Swift and WHS.

“Thank-you to the Watertown Foundation for their continued support and the funding for the two recent Master Classes that were provided for our strings and choral students. We are fortunate to have a community that supports music development in our school!”
Paul Jones, Principal, Watertown High School
