Hall Piano Company would like to congratulate The Greater New Orleans Suzuki Forum on the success of their recent Fiddle-A-Thon held on March 21st at Lakeside Mall in Metairie. The day was filled with wonderful music from members of the GNO Suzuki Forum demonstrating their skill and enjoyment at instruments such as piano, violin, viola, cello, bass, flute, guitar, and more.
Performers included Lauren Lemmler, Stephanie Screen, Matthews Hayes, Kathleen Tyree, Michael Harvey and Carl Keith. Starting at 9:00, the day began with various instrument performances and educational demonstrations. Noon-time saw the performers walking through the mall and performing for their various sponsors. Performances on guitar, violin and viola followed, as well as a student workshop on jazz improvisation. The day was ended with all of the performers taking a final stroll through the mall to thank the merchant donors and a visit with the Easter Bunny.
Hall Piano Company was proud to provide the use of a Boston UP118S studio upright piano for the day’s performances, thanks to a generous sponsorship from the Steinway Society Of New Orleans.
The Fiddle-A-Thon is an annual event held by the GNO Suzuki Forum to assist in the fundraising efforts for the GNO Suzuki Summer Music Camp, a week-long camp for students, parents, and teachers to enhance their music education through the Suzuki Method of teaching, held at Ridgewood Preparatory School.
