*SMC Community Service Day (3/10/20 - North Branch): This is an opportunity for SMC families to give service by performing concerts in our community.  Venues include nursing homes, assisted living homes, hospitals, and shelters.  Each group of 10-12 children will have a tour group member and faculty member as the musical leaders and parent chaperones/drivers.  All students are expected to participate and Suzuki Music Columbus will present as many as five simultaneous concerts. If you have ideas for possible service concert venues contact Doug or Susan Locke.  A parent volunteer coordinates these community service concerts.
