You are invited to the 33rd annual Suzuki Strings Spring Concert on Thursday, May 12, at 7 p.m. in the Heritage Center in Cedar City.  Music ranges from classical to fiddling.

Rimi Fletcher will be the guest soprano soloist with the advanced violins for the Laughing Song by Strauss.  The orchestra has music by Bach, Handel, and Smetana plus the Star Trek theme.  Fiddle songs from Barrage include Short Bow Jig and Blackberry Blossom.  Genesis and Matthew Gonzalez are the soloists for the "Arrival of the Queen of Sheba" from Handel's oratorio Solomon.

Students range from 3 to adult.  Students participate in weekly group classes as well as private lessons.  Teachers are Marin Colby, Alexander Schwartz, Kindal Ridd, Ling Yu, and Sara Penny.  Pianists are Tasha Seegmiller, Rimi Fletcher, Beth Stephenson, and Mel Jeffs.  Twelve area teachers help prepare the students in individual lessons as well.

A suggested donation of $5 helps these young musicians tackle new music, pay for Heritage Center rental, and support our next generation of orchestra musicians.  You are invited to join in the musical celebration on Thursday, May 12, 7 p.m., Heritage Center, 105 N. 100 E. in Cedar City.
