“Tutti” is an Italian term used in musical scores, which means “everybody plays together”.
The annual Tutti Day event, celebrating Dr. Shinichi Suzuki’s birthday, is held in Edmonton in October every year. Students from Suzuki programs all over the city are invited to come and play together, something that we can easily do thanks to the amount of common repertoire that we share! Most recently, these events have been held at Edmonton City Hall.
The 2017 Tutti Day has been moved to Oct. 1 in order to coincide with Culture Days.
