The group sent out the following letter:

This year our 7th Annual MusicFest is Friday April 6, 2018 and we hope you’ll join us again to celebrate music as a performer, a volunteer, or a part of the audience – one, both, or all three! To those of you who have already signed up, thank you!  A flyer is attached to share with friends and family.

If you would like to perform, please contact us by Thursday, March 29.

Here is a link to the registration page on our website:

If you would like to volunteer, just email here and we will be in touch.

Your participation is what has made MusicFest, our major fundraiser of the year, such a special – and successful – event.  We have awarded over $23,000 in grants to support staffing, over $5,000 for teacher initiatives, and brought in over $16,000 from outside sources for the Watertown Public Schools.

We hope to see you again this year!

– Chris Lowry, on behalf of Friends of Watertown Music
