Celebrating the Success of our Violin Students
The Suzuki Violin Students at OCCTAC have been busy. Saturday, Oct. 1st, Irvine Global Village Festival Students from both SASS and TEC played their violins and serenaded children attending the Festival. The TEC Suzuki Booth became the Children’s music lounge, wedged between face painting and Japanese paper folding. We even got an interview with the Irvine City Community News reporter and the children played for the cameras. Hoping they will appear sometime later this year on the cultural page
. The reporter studied violin as a youth and knew who Dr. Suzuki was. How lucky can you get.
Monday, Oct. 10, Benise concert at the Grove, Spanish guitar and Latin Violinist as seen on PBS
Ms. Cynthia and 16 SASS students and parent chaperones are invited to attend the Benise concert and stay for a ‘meet and greet’ after the concert. The complimentary tickets where made possible by the kind effort of Omar Lopez , the violinist featured at the concert. Omar is a young Latin violinist and composer who grew up in the LA area and continued his career relocating in Texas. He drew his inspiration to become a professional musician when he attended a Benise concert as a high school student. He is looking forward to meeting our students for photos and autographs. We hope to add a little of his star power to our website for inspiration.
