AUBURN, Mass. – The Pakachoag Music School of Greater Worcester in Auburn has plenty going on in the fall, including a fiddle jam and theater productions.
The “Worcester Fiddle Jam” is coming up from 7 to 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 7, at 203 Pakachoag St. Join Pakachoag faculty member Amy Matherly and husband Chris as they lead a fiddle fest jam session and play your favorite selections. Everyone is welcome to bring their violin or fiddle to the Education Wing in the back of the building.
It costs $10 at the door. Advance reservation is requested. To sign up, email Amy in advance at AmyLMatherly@yahoo.com.
In addition, two theater productions are heading to the Auburn music school:
Flakes! – This show is a musical celebration of snow, slush and snirt (no, that's not a typo) for first-, second- and third-graders this fall. According to the school, “A blizzard is on the way as a cool bunch of jazzy, finger-snappin’ snowflakes take center stage. Join in the fun as the Flakes and Snirts help the Littlest Snowflake see how no two flakes are alike, and we are all special in our own special ways.”
School Daze – “This rockin' 35-minute musical by fourth-, fifth- and sixth-graders presents the humorous side of school life," the school press release states. "Song titles include The Concert Etiquette Rap; I'm In a Daze; Walk, Don't Run; I Love my Locker; Cafeterial Confusion; In the Gym; Detention; and Cyberspace.”
Since its founding in 1982, Pakachoag Music School of Greater Worcester, an independent, non-profit community school for the arts, has attracted hundreds of students from across central Massachusetts, northern Connecticut and Rhode Island.
Through grant-funded and partner-linked outreach programs, Pakachoag has effectively channeled limited resources into creating opportunities for under-served and under-privileged families from throughout the region, ensuring that quality, fine arts instruction is available to all.
