A Note from DWS Music Director Sara Fierer

Welcome to our 2021 Winter Concerts!

Making music exemplifies the Waldorf values of developing the whole human being and inspiring them to bring relevant contributions to the world.

The pandemic has made it clear how powerful it is to make music in a group. During this year in particular, when the students make music together, the feeling of community is palpable. In fact, studies show making music is a great unifier and through participation it gives us a sense of social belonging.  We come together to celebrate the effort and hard work in each group’s ability to play together.

I hope you can see and hear the love and joy as a result of the students working together to sing and play in harmony.

Thank you for giving us the precious opportunity of working with your children!
