piano concerto concert
The Piano Concerto Concert is a unique opportunity for piano students of all ages and all levels to perform as a soloist with a professional orchestra. This unique concert will allow student pianists the rare ensemble experience of performing with a chamber orchestra – an experience that even many professional pianists never enjoy. The concert will feature students playing repertoire at each level of Suzuki education from book 1 to advanced pieces.
Auditions are on Sunday, March, 31st, 2019 at the Suzuki Music School of Westport (246 Post Road East, Westport, CT 06883)
The Concert is on Sunday April 28th, 2018 at 5:30pm at the First United Methodist Church (42 Cross Road, Stamford, CT 06905)
Audition times will be decided after enrollment is closed. Advanced students will audition earlier in the day. Deadline for enrollment is March 17th, 2019
