Registration Deadline is August 22, 2018.

The Arizona Suzuki Association invites you to participate in an exciting event in 2018 to celebrate Dr. Suzuki’s 120th birthday. All Suzuki violin, viola, cello, guitar and voice students and families are invited to participate in a Grand Canyon Celebration Concert to celebrate Dr. Shinichi Suzuki’s 120th birthday. The event will be a Suzuki “Play-In” which is when students come together and play as many songs as possible together, with different teachers leading the songs for an audience.  Students should review the repertoire on the review list below before the registration buttons.

The celebration concert will take place on Saturday, September 22, 2018 from 1:00-3:00pm at the Shrine of the Ages chapel at the Grand Canyon. All registered students will recieve a celebration concert t-shirt at the event.

September 22 is Public Lands Day, which is free entry to the national park. If you would like to spend the night at the Grand Canyon, families are encouraged to make reservations ASAP. Rooms fill up quickly!

Another fun option to consider would be taking the Grand Canyon Railway train from Williams, Arizona to the Grand Canyon. The train departs Williams at 9:30am and arrives at the Grand Canyon by 11:45am. The train later departs the Grand Canyon at 3:30pm and returns to Williams by 5:45pm. For more information about train tickets, check out the Grand Canyon Railway website:

We are very excited to have this unique performance opportunity to look forward to in 2018! Save the date and spread the word to other students and families this year so we can all make music and celebrate Dr. Suzuki’s 120th birthday together!
