Students will have the opportunity to perform and hear other students of all levels play. All students should plan to arrive by 5:50 pm for a prompt 6:00 pm start. We will have a cake reception in the Gary Sipes area at the conclusion of the recitals. All recitals will conclude by 7:00 pm.

MacPhail Suzuki Association – A Parent Volunteer Program
“Strengthening the relationship between child, parent, teacher and the community”
The MacPhail Suzuki Association (MSA) was organized in 1974 by parents of students in the Suzuki Talent Education program at MacPhail. Its purpose is to aid in the development of the MacPhail Suzuki program, serve as a forum for parental input and assistance, and stimulate parental involvement in Suzuki-related activities. Parents work closely with MacPhail staff to strengthen and secure community support for the program. We encourage all parents to become a member of MSA. Parents are invited to participate in MSA volunteer activities.
MSA Meetings are held once a month from October through May. All parents are welcome and encouraged to attend.
The MSA relies on membership dues and parent volunteers to support activities. All MacPhail Suzuki parents are strongly encouraged to join the MSA. Visit our new website to learn more: http://www.macphailsa.org/
