Schools to host music festival


NAUGATUCK — The Naugatuck public schools music department will host the annual town-wide Borough Music Festival this week.

The festival will be held Friday at 7 p.m. at Naugatuck High School, 543 Rubber Ave. Hundreds of Naugatuck students in grades four through 12 will put on a concert that will alternate between instrumental and vocal pieces. This year’s guest conductor is Gary Partridge.

Parking is limited at the high school due to the ongoing construction. A shuttle bus will be running from Western School and Andrew Avenue School starting at 6:20 p.m. The shuttles leave at 10 minute intervals and will bring people back after the concert.

Tickets to the festival are $3 per person with a $10 maximum per family. Additional donations will be accepted. For more information, email Michele Beck at
