Marlborough students will be performing for the general public this week at the Solomon Pond Mall.
“Any time students have a chance to perform in front of an audience it’s a winning situation," said Johnathan Rosenthal, music coordinator for Marlborough Public Schools. “We love taking what we do and bringing it to the community and sharing that art form."
It is not just a matter of sharing, but also of learning for the students, he said. The amount of pieces they must prepare is in itself a learning experience for the students, beyond the actual performance, said Rosenthal.
“The effort it takes to prepare such a large selection of music is what is challenging but it is that challenge that makes it great," he said explaining that the effort is always getting to the performance ready level with the students.
