Dear students,

Attending live performances is a very important aspect of your musical education. In fact, it is just as important as individual practice, private lessons and group lessons. Attending performances will give you the inspiration and energy a boost. You will find this gives you motivation for daily practice. All groups are extremely talented youth orchestras. Their performances are usually free. The Utah Symphony family concerts are specifically geared toward youth and you will need to purchase tickets.

Here are a few performance opportunities to attend:

March 4, 7pm, Rocky Mountain Strings (see below)
March 10, 7:30pm, Young Artist Chamber Players at Westminster Concert Hall
March 30th, 11am and 12:30pm, Utah Symphony Youth Series, Abravanel Hall

Teachers and friends,
Ramona Stirling, who is the founder of Intermountain Suzuki String Institute, is bringing her renown violin group, Rocky Mountain Strings,  to Heber! The performance will be held at the library March 4th at 7:00 pm.  Ramona was also just nominated music educator of the year.  Rocky Mountain Strings is a youth group of children who are truly inspiring.  Not only inspiring for those in attendance, but also for those who play an instrument.  You will see children  from approximate ages of 4 to young teens who have learned to master the violin.  Admission is free.  I highly recommend you attend as well as your students and friends.  The library has limited seating so I would suggest you show up early to claim your seat.  Feel free to pass this email on to others. Let me know if you have any questions.
