Below are videos from the WSSTE Suzuki School, as well as videos of Emily playing solo.
Allegro!!! is one of our Performing Ensembles at WSSTE. In Allegro, the kids use movement, dance, contemporary and fiddle styles of music, lighting, and drums to make a unique and creative performing experience. In Allegro, the kids learn how to truly perform in their own bodies as musicians, learn to push the limits of their playing to new levels, and unique ensemble playing. Under the Direction of Edward Kreitman, and Choreographer Jennifer Mather, Allegro has traveled as far as Puerto Rico on tour, and played benefit concerts for communities all around the United States. Allegro is mostly for our middle school-aged Suzuki Child, and incorporates a wonderful sense of community to keep the children engaged and motivated with the violin.
