Southwestern Ontario Suzuki Institute Inc.

Student Institute & Teacher Development postponed until 2021

Adult Program in Violin, Viola, Cello & Bass

We regret to inform you that an in-person SOSI will not be happening this summer.

We will be moving forward with an online version of our Young Artist Program, but all other programs will be postponed until Aug 2021, and we hope to see you all there at that time!

Be safe, and well, until we can once again gather in Waterloo, and keep the music playing!
