Special sharing event this Tuesday at 5:30!

This Tuesday, March 21st we’ll be gathering at MyArts from 5:30-6:30 to hold a special sharing event.  Each class will share a selection from a black or female composer.  Music and Movement and pre-twinkle violin and cello classes will still be held that day.  Maria-Rosa will be selling SSM T-shirts at the event, so everyone has one to wear for the Danish String Quartet field trip on April 18th!

No group classes on Tuesday, March 28th.  Have a wonderful spring break!

Calendar update: there will be no play-in on April 25th.  We’ll be holding regular group classes that day to prepare for our spring concert.

We’ve extended the date for Danish string quartet tickets orders ONE MORE TIME!  If you’ve missed out, you can email Diana at dvpopowycz@gmail.com by March 27th for tickets at the $10 rate.  Please include family name/student name and number of tickets requested.

Come join your SSM/MCE friends on June 16th for a special event at the duck pond!  This is a non-profit night benefiting Suzuki Strings, and we’ll get a portion of each ticket we sell.  In addition to playing the national anthem, there will be a 50-50 raffle (also benefiting SSM), and a Suzuki Strings promo table.  Click here to reserve your ticket–and please share widely with your friends and family!

FFF (Fantastic Folk and Fiddle) is now open for registration!  This event occurs August 2-5th, and is for students ages 10-18.
