On Saturday, June 10, all SSSG students are invited to participate in 150 Strong at the GYMC. The event will have many opportunities for SSSG students to perform.  This event will be done in collaboration with the GYMC and Guelph Youth Singers. The event will run all day and feature performances from more that 150 young Canadians, James Gordon, and Relative Harmony (barn dancing anyone?). There will be free food to snack on, and even face painting! 
Warm-ups and rehearsals will be from 11 am to 12:45, there will be a rehearsal in the Navy League building attached to the GYMC. The rehearsal schedule will be out shortly.


Performance Schedule:

Suzuki Early Childhood Education Workshops ce
The Suzuki String School of Guelph is proud to announce that on  Saturday, June 10 , we will be offering two Suzuki Early Childhood Education (SECE) workshops at the Guelph Youth Music Centre. This will give you a taste of the new program we will be launching in the fall. SECE is a program similar to Music Moves where children and their parents explore musical concepts together. SECE specialist Kelly Williamson will be joined by Suzuki teacher Carmen Eavans in the delivery of these workshops.

Admission is free and each class is open to children from 0-3 years old, accompanied by an adult. Space will be limited to 12 children per class. Please click the link below to reserve a space either at  10:30 am  or  12 pm
