RALPHFEST - Saturday, October 19th-more details to come
All students are encouraged to come join us for a fun filled afternoon at the Monday’s Farm in Claremont. There will be bluegrass jams, a Suzuki Play In concert, Hayrides, a Pig Pickin, Silent Auction, and good old-fashioned outside playing. Please come join us for a great afternoon. This festival/fund-raiser is in memory of Ralph Monday, the patriarch of the Monday family. He was an older beginning violin student, supported the Suzuki School of the Arts, and loved playing violin with his whole heart.
