winter percussion


The Westhill Winter Percussion Ensemble has enjoyed unprecedented growth this year, but with the large increase in participation comes some growing pains. We are in need of a donation of a relatively recent Macbook to program sound libraries for our synthesizers at shows. We need any model that has a 64-bit processor, at least one working USB port, and is capable of running OS X 10.9.5 or higher. If you are able to help our music programs, please contact Mr. Wyatt at mwyatt@stamfordct.gov or 203-977-4426.
