The music festival highlights high school music orchestra students from Somerset, Fall River and Dartmouth and will be held on Sunday, March 27th at Somerset High School at 6:30pm. Each school orchestra will play individually and then the Fall River Symphony with play a partial program followed by one grand combined piece by all the orchestras.
The concert this year will have a dual purpose and also host the Young Artist Concert where the winner Nina Perry from Somerset will perform as part of this grand concert experience. In total there will be over 250 local musicians performing at the festival.
BankFive’s sponsorship has allowed admission costs to be low with tickets for adults being sold for five dollars and tickets for children being sold for two dollars. All proceeds will benefit a scholarship fund for the three participating schools, Somerset High School, Dartmouth High School and Durfee High School.
