In light of our recent cancellation of the Chicago Suzuki Institute for the summer of 2020, we will instead be offering the Music Institute of Chicago Virtual Suzuki Festival, an online experience for violin, viola, piano, and cello students ranging from Book 2 and up. The Festival will run from Monday, June 29 through Friday, July 3. Each student will receive 3 hours of instruction a day: a masterclass, a group class, and a rotating slot of enrichment courses. Class sizes will be small - masterclasses of 3 or fewer student and groups of no more than 8 students. All classes will be taught by members of our renowned CSI faculty. Registration will remain open until June 7th.
