Every year during the month of June the sounds of hundreds of young string players fill the charming Victorian town of Ottawa, Kansas, located 45 minutes southwest of Kansas City on I-35. Players at all levels of abilities are welcomed into one or more of four programs on the lovely campus of Ottawa University. 2017 marks the 43rd Anniversary of the founding of our summer programs. 2016-2017 marks the celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Ottawa Suzuki Strings, Inc., the host organization.
