WESTFIELD, NJ —Members of the public are invited to attend any of the 40 musical events scheduled at Westfield public schools this spring, the fine arts department announced this week. About 2,500 students in kindergarten through 12th grade perform in concerts and musicals district-wide, according to the schools.

“Studies have shown that young people who participate in the arts for at least three hours, three days a week for a year are four times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement, three times more likely to be elected to class office within their schools and four times more likely to participate in a math and science fair,” noted Westfield Fine Arts Supervisor Linda King.

School addresses are available on the district website at www.westfieldnjk12.org.  Dates and locations for each performance is listed below. All concerts are free and begin at 7 p.m. unless otherwise noted.
