Many thanks to everyone who came out and joined us for our annual Play-In & Ice Cream social to help kick off the school year. It was a lot of fun to see and hear you all back in one place again after summer. There’s something really special about a large group of stringed instruments playing together, as you can hear at Suzuki Institutes, Workshops, and group performances – I really recommend experiencing it as often as you can! To those who weren’t able to make it this time, we missed you and we hope you’ll be able to join us for the next one!
Starting next Tuesday, August 28, fall group classes will begin in earnest at Good Shepherd Church (1166 S Mason). The schedule is the same as in past years:
- 5:30-6:00 p.m. – A Majors (Pre-Twinkle – Andantino)
- 6:10-6:40 p.m. – G Majors (Etude – Bach Bourree)
- 6:50-7:20 p.m. – Viola Choir (layered violas of all levels)
- 7:20-8:05 p.m. – Circle of 5ths (Book 4+)
- 8:05-8:50 p.m. – Performance Ensemble (supplemental/non-Suzuki Book 4+)
HOWEVER, many of you have graduated to new class levels! If you have moved into the second half of Book 1, we would love to have you join us in G Majors. If you’ve completed Book 3 and are making your way into Book 4, we would love to have you get your feet wet in Circle of 5ths AND keep coming to G Majors. If you’re solidly in Book 4, 5, 6 or above, we’d love to have you in Performance Ensemble, as well. Please refer to the sheet below to find your assigned group(s) for this semester, and let your teacher know if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday evenings!
