Music permeated the halls of Watertown Middle School Friday night during the fifth annual MusicFest.
Each year, the Friends of Watertown Music gives local musicians the chance to showcase their musical talent, and this year, more than 50 acts took part in the festivities.
The event raises money for Friends of Watertown Music, a group of volunteer parents and friends of the music program established in the summer of 2011 to raise the funds necessary to maintain and sustain the music programs in the Watertown Public Schools.
While many performers were students in the Watertown Public Schools, the event drew outside groups, Watertown music teachers and other groups from the community.
Attendees could choose from four stages – from the small one in the WMS art room to the large stage of the Middle School Auditorium.
Those yet to start learning an instrument could try some out at the Instrument Petting Zoo.
