Carnival of the Animals - Conference 2018

Teachers, Students, Families, add a little Saint Saëns to your evening fun and enjoyment!

At the SAA’s 18th Conference in Minneapolis, examples of crowning Suzuki achievements were seen in the performances of our student ensembles. Last May’s lineup included Cello Choir, Flute Choir and Performing Ensemble, Viola Choir, Guitar Ensemble, Advanced Violin Performing Ensemble, Suzuki Youth Orchestras of the Americas (SYOA) I & 2, Suzuki Young Artists String Ensemble (SYASE), and Piano Ensemble. See select videos from Conference here.

We are so fortunate to have video productions of many of those events, both for your enjoyment now and for our SAA archives. Recently added to the Conference performance videos on our website is our Piano Ensemble’s production of Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals, performed with two pianos and string orchestra conducted by Emmett Drake and narrated by Winifred Crock. Coordinated and coached by Malgosia Lis, the performance was a very special highlight of the weekend. We hope you enjoy watching it!

It is never too early to start planning for the next conference. Student applications will be due in October, 2019, for the 19th Conference, May 21-25, 2020. Watch for guidelines and other details this spring!
