This will be the 39th consecutive year Buffalo Suzuki Strings has been invited to play with the Ars Nova Chamber Musicians and director Marylouise Nanna. The Buffalo Suzuki Strings' advanced ensemble will perform Concerto for Two Violins in G Minor RV 517.
Mary Cay Neal, director of Buffalo Suzuki Strings, said she feels privileged to be a part of this program. "Over the years, performing with the professional Ars Nova Chamber Orchestra in the Viva Vivaldi Festival has inspired our students to reach for higher artistic goals. We are so fortunate to be performing with such talented musicians."
The third concert in the Viva Vivaldi Festival XXXIX will take place this Sunday, Nov. 12, at 6:30 p.m. at Holy Angels Church, 348 Porter Ave., Buffalo.
Ars Nova Musicians Chamber Orchestra has been frequently selected among The Buffalo News year-end Critic's Choice reviews. They were the first local chamber ensemble to perform in Carnegie Recital hall, where they garnered praise from The New York Times. Their two televised concert specials from Canisius College earned the prestigious Peabody Award nominations and were broadcast nationwide.
Founded by Mary Cay Neal in 1969, Buffalo Suzuki Strings is modeled after Dr. Shinichi Suzuki's Talent Education Program in Matsumoto, Japan. Buffalo Suzuki Strings is committed to carrying out the pedagogical vision of Suzuki.
While there are many Suzuki teachers, it is unique to have an entire school steeped in the Suzuki method. In fact, Buffalo Suzuki Strings is one of only a few schools in the U.S. to teach the Suzuki Method with such a broad range of instruments: violin, viola, cello, piano, classical guitar and harp, as well as Suzuki early childhood education.
Throughout its 48-year history, Buffalo Suzuki Strings has produced students who play at the highest levels. Buffalo Suzuki Strings' students have performed with all of the orchestras in Western New York, including the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra. Its Friendship Touring Ensemble has performed in 29 countries around the world.
Buffalo Suzuki Strings provides a child-friendly, conservatory-like atmosphere dedicated to teaching the Suzuki method of music to children birth to age 18.
