The 2nd annual Frank Longay Memorial Concert, featuring
Celso Machado, in a concert for the whole family
The Frank Longay Memorial Foundation is dedicated to supporting music education for children, the promotion of classical music performance and providing scholarship opportunities for teachers interested in continuing their professional development in Suzuki guitar pedagogy.
This annual concert serves as a Foundation fundraiser and an opportunity for us to come together in community, celebration and remembrance of Frank Longay.
“I am reminded over and over again of the tremendous value that learning music has for the young. Today’s children are confronted on all sides by numerous domestic and social challenges. The elegant and rewarding discipline of music stands out as a powerful aid in directing them towards a healthy, happy and responsible adulthood.”
— Frank Longay
