Dr. Shinichi Suzuki was a Japanese violinist and humanitarian. Witnessing the destruction of his homeland due to the second World War, he formed a vision to help nudge the world toward peace through its children. Through music, Dr. Suzuki hoped to build noble hearts in children all around the world.
With this in mind, we produce an event each year that connects our students from Oak Park and the surrounding areas to the larger world they live in. In previous years, our students helped to raise money through their music for the UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees), the Heartland Alliance’s unaccompanied minor program, and Hephzibah Children’s Association.
This year, our music students are collaborating with A House in Austin.
OPSA students will be performing a concert at Grace Lutheran Church in River Forest on December 7 at 3:00p. Please join us for the concert and support the work of A House in Austin here.
OPSA students and faculty will be collaborating with other Oak Park area musicians to create a moving concert to include violin and cello students of all ages and levels. In previous years, we performed music from Syria, Lebanon, China, Romania, and more. This year, the concert will include a Vivaldi Double concerto performed with full string ensemble, a piece by Argentinian composer, Astor Piazzolla, a Beethoven string quartet and even a holiday sing along. Students will join to play music together and hopefully make the world just a little more peaceful and beautiful.
A House in Austin will be the recipient of the funds we raise. In past years, OPSA has raised almost $2,000 for our recipient organizations. We hope to do even better this year! You can make a donation right away!
