Welcome to a typical Thursday at Indian Hill Music ... It's 9:30 in the morning and young children are arriving with their caregivers for Early Childhood music classes. They excitedly clamber up to the second floor where our teachers greet them with smiles, songs, dance, and stories.
Meanwhile, several of our Music School faculty are conducting an ensemble performance at the Ayer-Shirley elementary schools. This partnership, seven years strong, introduces children in an under-resourced school district to band through group lessons, performances and "Instrument Petting Zoos."
By 10:15 vans carrying dozens of seniors arrive to settle into our lovely Camilla Blackman Hall for the first of our Bach's Lunch concerts. These free monthly concerts feature Indian Hill's professional musicians playing a wide variety of music to the delight of all ages.
As the audience files out of the second Bach's Lunch concert of the day, Music School students begin arriving and our 22 studios are filled with the sounds of Bach, Brubeck, and Beyonce. Parents and siblings are mingling in the lobbies. As afternoon moves into evening, Indian Hill's adult Big Band begins rehearsing in the Hall. A 34-year old woman is taking an Irish fiddle lesson. The professional Orchestra of Indian Hill is rehearsing Beethoven's Symphony No. 2 next door at the Littleton High School auditorium. Music School students and families, taking advantage of the open rehearsal, listen with intense interest.
This is Indian Hill Music ... a large, vibrant community comprised of smaller communities of musicians, students, audiences, ensembles, families. Every day, Indian Hill transforms your neighbors’ lives through music. We invite you to participate in this community, in whatever way suits your musical interests. We guarantee it will change your life!
