Our December Program: Music for the Holiday Season

SONY DSCThe Women’s Forum of Litchfield returns to St. Michael’s Church, 25 South St. in the center of Litchfield, on Thursday December 6th at 2:30 PM for our musical Holiday program. This year we feature two talented women from the Waterbury Symphony Orchestra who will be playing holiday songs from medieval times to current melodies.

Amy Jones is a violinist/violist who has been playing with the Waterbury Symphony for 23 years. She is also involved with the WSO’s educational programs as a String Mentor with the programs at the Waterbury Arts Magnet School, Chase Collegiate and is a teaching artist in the WSO’s “Bravo Waterbury” Program. She has worked with the Musical Readers Program for young children since its inception and serves as a liaison between the WSO and program sites.

Rebecca Patterson received her B.M. from the Eastman School of Music and M.M. from the Yale School of Music. She has been the recipient of many awards and merit-based scholarships over the years. In recent years Ms. Patterson has focused on the Connecticut community as Principal Cellist of the New Haven Symphony and Waterbury Symphony Orchestra, instructor of cello at UCONN Storrs and teacher and chamber music coach through out the state.

After the performance please join us in the Community House next door for tea and refreshments. The guest fee is $10 and all are welcome.
