AOM Suzuki Plays National Anthem at Tides Game

We played the national anthem for our Triple-A baseball team, The Tides, in May 2017—first time ever for us! Over 50 students played an arrangement that involved Twinklers—mid bk 1 playing open strings, violists and cellists on a low harmony part, and late Bk 1 through upper level violinists playing either the melody or a high harmony part. The students rehearsed their parts in group class and performed admirably at the game. The baseball crowd enthusiastically applauded their performance!
