Suzuki Music Festival 2024

Here are some photos from the recent Suzuki Music Festival at MLC school in Kew. Congratulations to the five students from our studio who attended this year. They were Elena, Gwen, Alex, Kitty and Zoha. They participated in tutorials, repertoire classes and the final concert. We also attended lots of inspiring concerts, both solo and ensemble. Alex and Zoha played in one of the string orchestras which started at Book 2 level this year.

Next year there will not be a Festival in autumn. Instead there will be a national conference from July 8-12, 2025. This is just like a festival except there are students and teachers not only from Victoria but also from the rest of Australia and possibly overseas, please consider going.
