On December 18th, 65 students and parents from WSSTE/NSS attended the Chamber Players of Lincoln Center's performance of the all six of the Bach Brandenburg Concertos.
Featured on the concert was violinist Benjamin Beilman, who studied at WSSTE for several years when he was growing up. Ben's mom, Judy Beilman, notified me about the upcoming concert, and I thought it would be the perfect opportunity for our reading orchestras to make a study of the Brandenburg Concertos this fall, culminating in attendance at the concert. The festive performance was a great way to introduce the students to this wonderful music and terrific start to the holiday season.
