The Augsburg University Suzuki Ensemble perform a programme of classical, sacred, fiddle music , folk songs and show pieces
Augsburg University Suzuki Talent Education (AUSTE) was founded in 1989 under the leadership of Nancy Lokken. Students have won numerous awards, and have performed with many orchestras in the Minnesota district. The opportunity to tour and perform is open to any student in the programme who is able to travel and is committed to working hard. Students have performed in Spain, Mexico, Austria and the Czech Republic.
For several years the Augsburg Suzuki Ensemble has partnered with hospitals, nursing homes, and patient support facilities to provide students with a means of sharing their gift of music with others where it has made a difference.
The goal through all their hard work is to develop a lifelong joy of making music.
