We are excited to host this NEW ensemble program for spring 2022:

PlayTogether Go, created by our multi-media specialist Allison Dobbs

What is it?

An unique multi-media program combining playing together and game character design, featuring music commissioned specially for our students!

Who’s it for?

All students who are beyond the very beginning stages on their instrument, whether enrolled for private lessons here or elsewhere.

How will it work?

Participating students will:

  • be grouped into small ensembles of 2-5 players, based on age range and playing level
  • learn and rehearse music written specially for their group by a local composer
  • have 9 weeks of faculty coaching on the music
  • meet their group’s composer in person in an informal 10th session, discovering why and how this person writes music, especially this new piece 
  • invent a character for their own musical part, and create a recording and artwork for the character which will become part of a game program

How will it end?

In a fun public event on Sunday, May 22, 2:30 - 4:30pm, for all families in the community!

  • Students will give the world premiere performance of their group’s music
  • Students’ invented characters will star in a Pokemon®-inspired event
  • The characters and their recorded music will be hidden all over the event's location (a public space in Wayland, TBA). 
  • Students, families, friends and community members will use their phones to search for and collect the hidden characters and music, to play an online game. 
  • All who complete the game will be entered in a raffle for fun prizes.  

Who are the composers?  

We are specifically featuring locally-based composers from under-represented groups, so that students can expand their awareness and appreciation of both who composes music, and why they do.

Composers already committed to the project include Andrew Marshall, Tomoko Iwamoto, and Charles Shadle. We are in discussion with several other local composers who have shown enthusiastic interest in this project.

Our composers are excited to work with this new generation of young musicians! They are comfortable with young people, and skilled at writing for students with developing technique.
