Celebration Concert

Celebration
We’re working on a huge Suzuki Concert here in Utah. Every three years we have a “Celebration Concert”. It involves all of the Suzuki violin students in the entire state. All instruments. This year is our 7th Celebration and it is entitled “Nurtured by Love”. It will be on October 20, 2007. It requires an amazing amount of preparation. We have a Twinkle Variation written for all instruments. We also plan to play Dr. Suzuki’s composition “Wishing”. Each instrument is given 7 minutes to perform. We have Suzuki Organ here which works out really well with the huge organ in the Mormon Conference Center which holds 30,000 people. 3000 students perform. Each family is given 10 tickets to sell. I’m always interested in hearing about other giant Suzuki Concerts being held all around the world. There is always the 51st Annual Grand Concert in Japan on the 28th of March 2007 in the Nippon Budokan.
