Plan on arriving at least 10-15 minutes before your recital time, ready to go. Our teachers will be outside the main door to the auditorium to let you in. Please plan on staying for the entire recital to support other students and for your own student to experience the talents of other young musicians.
After the second recital, we invite students and families to a small reception at the auditorium, with light food and drinks.
Dress Code: Please dress formally, in your 'Sunday Best'. Colors are ok and dress shoes are important. No t-shirts, shorts or sneakers please!
LOCATION: Bay Village of Sarasota Auditorium
Memorial for Isabella Paoletta (2004 - 2019)
2:45 to 3:15 pm
Between our two fall recitals will be a musical commemoration of one of our dear students who passed away this summer. Teachers and students at the Suzuki Institute along with musicians from the Strings ConBrio chamber ensemble are combining to pay a special tribute to Isabella, through music that she learned with her teacher Nikki.
NOTE: Those who come for the 1:30 recital are most welcome to stay for the memorial after the end of that recital. Also, those coming for the 3:30 recital who would like to join us (especially those who might have some connection with or memory of Isabella at our school), are welcome to come early and do so. Just please be aware that this will be an important and solemn occasion and we would like to give it due respect without people coming and leaving during it. Also, while we believe this to be a very significant and poignant moment for our school community, if this is something you'd rather not expose to your young ones, we understand that you will make that judgment call and not be there between the two recitals.
