The Five-Week Summer Performance Program is in full swing! Students from across the country are continuing to make progress in their writing workshops, jam sessions, ensemble rehearsals and other enriching program activities.
With so much going on, its hard for the staff – even the students – to keep up, but we managed to catch some of the past weeks events on camera.
On Monday night Jennifer Carino, Denisse Torres, Elle Gomes and Jennifer Aldana, all recent graduates of Boston area High Schools and City Music Scholars Program sang the National Anthem at Fenway Park before the first pitch of the Red Sox vs KC Royals game (video).
This week students are rehearsing for the upcoming City Music Scholarship Concert on August 9th. Earlier we dropped by and caught the R&B Ensemble as they were rehearsing the theme song from Shaft.
Each student in the Five-Week Program has an amazing story about their musical talent, how they got here and where they hope their dreams will take them. Who better to tell that story than the students themselves? Here are some videos we’ve done of personal interviews with our students.
