What is the Trophy Festival?
This event’s purpose is to provide an opportunity for students to perform for a clinician/adjudicator and receive positive comments or suggestions as well as a trophy – tangible evidence of their effort and accomplishments. This event serves as a terrific readiness for elementary students who will later perform in Solo/Ensemble Festivals and take Region and Youth Orchestra Auditions; it is also perfect for more advanced or older students who need additional performing experience in a low pressure and supportive environment.
Proceeds from the Trophy Festival largely fund the NTSA’s Scholarship Fund, which provides financial support for outstanding students to attend summer Suzuki Institutes.
What is the North Texas Suzuki Association?
The North Texas Suzuki Association exists to coordinate, support and publicize Suzuki events in North Texas. We promote Suzuki teaching and training among teachers, parents, students and the general public. The highest standards of excellence in teaching and playing are encouraged among our members. NTSA also serves as a vehicle for communication among Suzuki teachers and fosters growth of the Suzuki philosophy in Texas.
