Suzuki-Alegre Strings presents STRINGTACULAR

Stringtacular 2018




Stringtacular is a vibrant collaboration of young string players representing Merit’s music programs at El Valor Guadalupe Reyes Center, Pilsen’s Whittier Elementary School, and Merit’s Suzuki-Alegre Strings program. Stringtacular is an annual concert that showcases more than 300 1st grade through high school students, all performing together on one stage. These students are renowned for their extraordinary talent and how they fuse Latin Folk Music with the Suzuki method.  To help celebrate the 20th anniversary this year, alums of the program were invited back to enjoy the concert and perform alongside the student musicians.

In twenty years, Suzuki-Alegre students have performed at the opening of the National Museum of Mexican Art, played for President Vicente Fox of Mexico, toured Japan, made several television appearances, and experienced the joy and power of music in their lives.

Students take a bow at Stringtacular 2017
