Which pieces should we review for the Festival?

The magic of bringing Suzuki students together is that we share a common repertoire of pieces. While we do expect that students will make an effort to review all of the music they have already learned, we realize it's helpful to have a smaller number of pieces on which to focus for this event. Here is a complete list of Festival repertoire, including suggested jazz tunes and parts for the Book 4+ ensemble piece (for all instruments).

All of the tunes are searchable in streaming audio services. The links below will give you an option to hear each of the tunes being played in a famous performance. If you choose to prepare one of these pieces, please contact us for the sheet music.

Autumn Leaves (Joseph Kosma)

Someone to Watch Over Me (George Gershwin)
