10:00am - 11:00am: Uni Suzuki School

The mission of the UNI Suzuki School is to enrich the lives of children and adults through the study of music.

The UNI Suzuki Talent Education Program (UNI STEP) was founded in January of 1976, as a pilot program in string education in the School of Music at the University of Northern Iowa developed by Martha Holvik.

11:15am - 1:15pm: The Enablers

The Enablers play the music of Bill Monroe, Asleep at the Wheel, Bob Wills and feature classic blues, bluegrass and country swing mixed in with their own original songs. On guitar: Scott Gallagher and Raldo Schneider. On banjo: Rush Cleveland. On fiddles: Marcy Schneider and Denyce Gallagher.  Harmonica: Dutch De Boer. Bass: Jim Stout.

2:00pm - 5:00pm: Orchestra Alto Maize

Orquesta Alto Maiz is something of a musical enigma. It is a popular Latin-jazz-dance band made up of musicians now living in the “heartland” of America.

The Latin tinged music they perform, usually found in the clubs of New York City, L.A. or Miami, has secured them a reputation as one of the hottest bands in the Midwest. This strange mix of “salsa” and tall corn works because of the years of musical experience the band members bring to the group, and because of their love for the music.
