The Greenville Suzuki Strings program owes its existence to the support of our community. It’s not common to find a program such as ours in any public school system, let alone in a relatively small town. However, it’s not surprising given Greenville’s history of music advocacy and appreciation. The champions in implementing this program, the Greenville Suzuki Strings Association (GSSA) and the Greenville Independent School District (GISD), are prime examples.

The GSSA and GISD join other non-profit organizations whose purpose is to enrich our lives through music. The Dallas Symphony Orchestra in Greenville Series, Kenneth Threadgill Concert Series,  Bob Wills Fiddle Festival and Contest,  and Greenville Entertainment Series all bring live music to our community throughout the year. All of these organizations rely on the patronage of our neighbors and community businesses.

Funding for this event is provided in part by the City of Greenville Hotel/Motel Occupancy Tax Revenues.
