Genine Perez Benfit Concert December 7

Dear Fans of Genine Perez and other jazz fans,

This December 7, 2008 , local jazz great, Genine Perez, will be featured at a benefit concert at Wildwood Park for the Arts!
This concert and silent auction benefits the students of the Suzuki Association of Central Arkansas (SACA). Since SACA’s founding in 1977, tens of thousands of dollars have been raised to provide music education in piano, cello, guitar and violin for children who could not otherwise afford to participate. In the last two years, the association has supplemented program activities with donations well over $24,000. We have also been able to send teachers to training in the US and Japan, greatly enhancing their teaching. Proceeds from this concert will go to the SACA student/teacher scholarship program and the biennial workshop.

The Suzuki Method of teaching music is unique in that children are taught to play music before they read music. Dr. Shinichi Suzuki of Japan believed that just as children learn to talk and have a vast vocabulary before learning to read, that children can also learn to play music before learning to read music. The Suzuki Method is also called the Mother Tongue Method as is follows these same principles as learning to speak one’s native language.

The attached flyer has more information on the concert and silent auction.

The event starts at 6 PM . You can purchase tickets for $45.00 at or you can mail your payment to: SACA, P.O. Box 94848, North Little Rock, AR 72190. Your tickets can be picked up at the Will Call window. For those ordering online, your receipt is your ticket to the event.
