Published 5:28 pm, Wednesday, November 3, 2010
The Sherman Chamber Ensemble and Sherman School will co-sponsor a Wednesday, Nov. 10 concert featuring students backed by ensemble musicians.
The concert will be held at New Milford High School on Route 7 South.
The performance is the culmination of Song to Symphony, a school-based song-writing residency program developed by musician, composer and educator Eliot Bailen.
This year's theme is "Sherman Grows Together," with the script and songs exploring Sherman's character as a family community.
The program combines songs, dramatic scenes and oral histories from residents who grew up on local farms.
Videotaped interviews with several members of farming families will be featured.
