44th anniversary celebration

SUNDAY, MAY 26, 2024 at 2:00pm
ORCHESTRA HALL, CHICAGO

On Sunday, May 26th, 2024 we will be returning to Chicago's Orchestra Hall for the 44th Anniversary Celebration Concert for the Western Springs School of Talent Education and the Naperville Suzuki School!! Due to the pandemic, we have not been able to have an Anniversary Celebration since 2016.  

We are very excited that the founding Director of our Chicago Consort,  Thomas Wermuth, will be returning after three years of retirement to lead the Chicago Consort and the alumni on the concert. 

 

We want to have as many alumni, Suzuki families, and students attend this huge event as possible! Please mark your calendars for May 25th and 26th -- May 25th is our dress rehearsal day with everyone involved in the concert, and May 26th is the actual concert day.

 

The school also has big news that is bitter sweet-- the Anniversary Concert will be founding Director Edward Kreitman's last concert with the Western Springs School of Talent Education and the Naperville Suzuki Schools. In the summer of 2024, Mr. Kreitman will be retiring and moving to Atlanta, Georgia where he will be teaching a small studio, continuing his Teacher Training and Directing the Atlanta Summer Suzuki Institute. 

 

 

The future of our schools is bright as we continue our legacy of excellence under the direction of Emily and Patrick Connolly and with the continued support of our illustrious faculty. 

 

We are welcoming all former students, Cellissimo, Chicago Consort, and Allegro!!! Alumni to come and share the stage with us once again to make beautiful music together.

 

Please help us to find all of the people on this list.  If you have email, phone or instagram or facebook contact information, please share so that we can personally invite everyone to the Celebration Concert.
