21st Century Prep students perform at State Capitol

 Sixty students from 21st Century Preparatory School perform at the State Capital on June 2. The students, grades K-8, were part of the school's Suzuki Strings group.

On Wednesday, June 2, sixty Suzuki Strings students from 21st Century Preparatory School traveled to Madison where they performed a recital at the State Capitol.

This was the first time that students from 21st Century Prep performed at the Capitol and they were thrilled by the experience. Members of the Suzuki Strings are in kindergarten through 8th grade, and they performed a variety of selections that were warmly received by visitors in attendance.

Mrs. Terry Hill, teacher at 21st Century Prep and director of the Suzuki Strings was impressed with the acoustics of the capitol, and compared it to playing at Carnegie Hall. Mrs. Hill commented, “The students were just amazing and did an outstanding job performing. We were so pleased with how well they played and how well everything came together."
