Semi Annual Recitals
Every student has the opportunity to perform in two studio recitals per year, one in December and one at the end of May/beginning of June. For most students this is a chance for a solo performance with piano accompaniment and a chance to demonstrate their hard work across the school year.
Senior Solo Recital
Our Senior solo recital provides a third opportunity for our Senior students to have a solo performance. The Senior Solo Recital is reserved for Book 4 graduates and above. Our school acknowledges Book 4 and Book 8 graduates with medals at this recital that takes place at the end of May/beginning of June.
Viva Suzuki is our school year grand finale. It is a concert that involves all SuzukiMusic students, from the earliest beginners to the most senior: violinists, violists, cellists, flutists and guitar students all perform in this event.
Viva Suzuki is our one major fundraiser of the school year. We raise money for Faculty Continuing Education, special school programming and to support our sister school in Haiti, Vision Nouvelle.
