The Nashville Suzuki Players performed at Seymour Intermediate School Wednesday as part of their free concert series.
The Nashville Suzuki Players are an acclaimed group of children, ranging in age from 8-12, who play violin under the direction of renowned composer, musician, and teacher, Thornton Cline.
The SIS children were enthusiastic about the concert, cheering loudly as the group emerged and applauding every song. However, the biggest applause came when the Suzuki Players – knowing their audience – broke into a familiar tune.
