Students from all the Watertown schools will be playing in the annual Bandarama concert on Tuesday, March 6, 2018, in the WHS gym starting at 7 p.m.

There will be 375 students participating from grades 3-12.

“This will be by far the largest group,” said Dr. Frederik Schuetze, the strings teacher for the entire district and the MC for the event.

The event has been conducted for 33 years and the students are “very excited” for this year’s event. Senior Julian Schepis, who will be playing the cello said, “It has been pretty well every year, the gym isn’t the best place, but the band and orchestra are prepared.”

The WHS string ensemble will be playing a compilation from the Beach Boys and the full orchestra will be playing a Western piece.

Turning toward the end of the show, every string player — from grades 3 through 12 — will play together in the “William Tell Overture.”

Fortunately, Bandarama is free, but people are encouraged to donate for scholarships.
