Second Annual Fundraiser Concert

The Suzuki Association of South Florida is hosting its Second Annual Fundraiser Concert, featuring many of our talented Suzuki teacher performers and several distinguished guest artists. The concert will feature music for a variety of instruments by Anton Arensky, J.S. Bach, Ludwig. van Beethoven, Antonin Dvorak, Carlos Gardel, Gerardo Matos Rodriquez, Joaquin Rodrigo, and Antonio Vivaldi.

The purpose of this concert is to raise funds specifically for students who need financial assistance to attend Suzuki workshops or Summer Suzuki Institutes around North America. In addition, scholarship funds will be available to teachers who wish to further their Suzuki training. We have a long tradition of offering scholarship assistance to families and teachers. With this concert we hope to continue being able to help fund these activities for families and teachers to further strengthen Dr. Suzuki’s goals of creating a better world.
