Hemschot performs in Westport

Ridgefield Academy student and clarinetist Sophia Hemschot, of Wilton, was among the 60 sixth grade students selected from 15 Fairfield County schools to participate in the Westport Community Band’s Play With The Band on May 20.

Play With The Band is a program that brings together adult and young musicians and is designed to give the students a chance to learn challenging music and be part of a full size concert band.

The concert, held at the Bedford Middle School in Westport following four weeks of rehearsals, included pieces like Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” and Meghan Trainor’s “It’s All About That Bass.”
