Town-wide Music Festival Wows Crowd

Westport’s Town-wide Music Festival is one of those fly-under-the-radar events.

Unless you’ve got a kid in it, chances are you won’t go. Or even hear of it.

But last week’s performance — with 5 Staples High School choral groups (including Orphenians), plus the Bedford and Coleytown Middle School 7th and 8th grade choral ensembles — deserves to be heard.

All music was written by guest conductor Jim Papoulis. At the end, all 300 students sang together. It was quite impressive.

Fortunately, former Staples Media Lab guru Jim Honeycutt taped the entire show. And uploaded it YouTube, for “06880” readers to enjoy at your leisure.
