The students of the Severson Suzuki Strings Studio were excited to spread holiday cheer to the residents of the Waunakee, Wisconsin Memory Care facility. After we performed a mini concert of Suzuki music and holiday tunes, the children mingled with the residents wishing them a happy holidays and thanking them for coming to our concert.
