“I am very proud of the level of performance we have in the strings program here at Dwight-Englewood, and I am pleased that we are able to highly cultivate the talents of students in this age group.  I see every day how music changes the lives of young people right here on our campus especially through groups like StringJam and String Society.

The MasterClass series opens our D-E community up to larger groups of students and gives performance and learning opportunities that enhance their musicianship and self-expression.”

— Dr. Rodney V. De Jarnett, Head of School, Dwight-Englewood
