"It is with sadness and hope that I must tell you that the Virginia Suzuki Institute and Kontras Quartet Chamber Music Workshop are cancelled for Summer 2020."

- Nan Freeman, Director

VSI is postponed until 2021 in accordance with federal and state guidelines in response to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. While the Emory & Henry campus will remain closed and we cannot gather in person during this time, we are hard at work planning some distance activities we can share with this community. Please keep in touch via our Facebook page.

For anyone who has already submitted payments for this year's Institute, we have begun the process of issuing refunds within the next two weeks.
