Review for Metropolitan Wind Symphony Inc, Jamaica Plain, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a music educator I have seen and worked with many community groups over the years and none have stood out as the Metropolitan Wind Symphony. The level of talent as a group is the best in the state and that is a reason why I continue to perform with this group, however, i particularly love the way this group reaches out to the surrounding communities. Every March we have a concert in which we invite students of our members to join with us. High school musicians come to a rehearsal and then perform one piece at our concert. The students love it because the level of music is something they might not be able to play in their own bands. I love it because it is a way to show kids that music lessons don't end when you leave school. If you take a look at the MWS program it states each member does for a living. Although there are many music teachers, there are also people who do other amazing things for a living. That is something that I (as a teacher) stress to my students when they perform with this group.
