Meriden Public Schools Visual & Performing Arts Created with Sketch.


Director: Mr. Potts

This group is made up of string players in the 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. Students in this group play violin, viola, cello, and upright bass. If you are entering as a violin player you may talk to your teacher about playing viola, cello, or bass. If you are entering the 6th grade, have not yet played an instrument, and are interested in joining this group, please speak to Ms. Kwiczor. This group meets all year long and performs in both the Winter and Spring Concerts as well as various other events and competitions.


  • All students are invited to be a part of instrumental music at Washington Middle School. It is important to sign up for band during the end of your 5th grade year (if you are currently in elementary school), or at the very beginning of the school year in grades 6 through 8. If you are interested in joining the band, it is strongly recommend that you email the director to be sure you are on his/her roster. Contact the director with any questions you may have.
