Stellae Boreales at the 2014 Suzuki Association of the Americas Conference

Stellae Boreales is delighted to announce that it has been invited to play in the International Ensembles Concert at the 2014 Suzuki Association of the Americas Conference, May 22-26, 2014. The trip to Minneapolis comes with many  musical and social opportunities for the students in addition to the Friday evening musical extravaganza. The students will work on a mini-concert with students from North, Central, and South America, participate in a Dalcroze movement clinic, and enjoy opportunities to watch masterclasses and other student performances.  It is a huge honour to be invited to play and represent Canada for the International Ensembles Concerts, and it does help to bring Ottawa Suzuki Strings into the broader Suzuki community's awareness and eye. 

Bravo and good luck!

 

Presenting Stellae Boreales

Stellae Boreales  is our premier performance violin choir, the senior students of Ottawa Suzuki Strings. Members range in age from 11 to 17, and most have been studying the violin since age 4 or 5. Many of the musicians have had the honour of performing with Maestro Pinchas Zukerman and the NAC Orchestra. Many are prize winners of the Kiwanis Music Festival and in the Canada Music Competition. In 2007 the ensemble toured Victoria BC; in 2008 the group undertook a two week performance tour of China. The group has also visited New York City, completed our 2011 season with performances in Iceland, and toured Washington, DC in 2012 and performed with the Peabody Institute ensemble. In 2013, Stellae Boreales Violin Ensemble had an exciting Performance Tour in Cuba.
