Dear Band Room Family, 

We are very excited to announce that this summer the Band Room will be merging with the United Theatre and the RI Philharmonic to create a brand new music school. 

As many of you have heard (and/or seen), the United Theatre in downtown Westerly has been completely renovated over the last few years and will become a beacon for the arts in Westerly and the region. When finished, the United will house multiple cinemas, a restaurant, a 600 capacity black box theatre, and NPR Rhode Island’s Washington County bureau. In addition to our new music school, the United will also offer continually expanding visual and performing arts education. 

Over the last year the Band Room has collaborated with the RI Philharmonic and the United to create a unique music education center for the Westerly and greater Ocean community. This partnership, named the RI Phil Music School at the United, personifies the United’s mission: to unite the community through the arts.

Beginning in July, 2021, The RI Phil Music School at The United will be our new home!!
