Tutti Day happens every year to celebrate Shinichi Suzuki’s birthday and his accomplishments in founding the wonderful music philosophy all of our kids are instructed. Born on October 17, 1898, Doctor Suzuki was the inventor of the international Suzuki Method of music education. City Hall sets the stage for our concert, and with its natural lit room, hosted the STE group perfectly.
The timeless sound of the strings fills the room with the traditional Suzuki repertoire. All ages participated from the first years to the senior students and teachers playing in unison in the celebration of the Doctor Suzuki’s philosophy. Doctor Suzuki’s philosophy of instruction revolves around the premise that talent can be developed in any child, a belief in “Talent Education”.
Parents and students alike enjoyed participating in the concert, which hosted a variety of songs focusing on different features of each of the instruments. From Twinkle to Humoresques, the strings, flutes and recorders entertained the audience as they showed their stuff in memory of Shintani Suzuki.
The recipients of the Grazyna Sobieraj Memorial Scholarship were awarded certificates. The Grazyna Sobieraj Memorial Scholarship is awarded to cello students who demonstrate a special love of music and the cello, and supports their attendance at a summer institute. The scholarships had been used to attend ASSI 2016 this past July.
