Heart of America Suzuki Association masterclass
We’re having a busy year! The Heart of America Suzuki Association just held the annual HASA Winter Suzuki Workshop on February 13th, 2016. Over 200 people participated. Valentine presents were given to every student! The concertmaster of the Kansas City Symphony, Noah Geller, held master classes for our most advanced violinists. Ho Ahn, also of the KCS, provided the cello master classes. We are fortunate to have Shirley Star in our region who teaches the ECE baby and toddler classes at the workshop each year. In addition, Mary Bassett Shemon (new to our area) brought a beautiful Suzuki flute ensemble to perform for our opening ceremonies. It was a big success all around!
This year, we are preparing to host our area’s Suzuki Graduation Recital, previously held for many years at the Ottawa Suzuki Institute Mid-Southwest. It will be a privilege for HASA to recognize the accomplishments of the many area Suzuki students who will participate.
The new 2015-2017 officers of HASA are Catherine Root, president; Andrea Kelley, secretary and Jean Dexter, treasurer. Check us out on Facebook at:
