Snyders to perform for WFU bookstore lunchtime music series

Five-year-old violinist Samantha Snyder and her nine-year-old brother, Zebulon, who plays guitar, will perform Oct. 29 at 11 a.m. — weather permitting — in front of the College Bookstore on University Plaza (Quad). The concert is part of Wake Forest University Stores’ “Bookstore Lunchtime Music Series” held every Thursday; however, this concert will be held on a Friday due to a scheduling conflict.

The music series, which was initiated to showcase various local and campus musical talent, is free and open to the public.

The Snyders are the children of Wake Forest graduate Samuel “Bud” Snyder and his wife Laine. They have performed at various recitals, church events, local nursing homes and The Fresh Market in Winston-Salem. They will perform an eclectic mix of music including solos and duets of traditional, classical and folk music, fiddle tunes and hymns.

Both children are studying the Suzuki method, which emphasizes learning to play musical instruments at a young age through listening, absorbing and copying. Samantha began studying violin at three years old, and Zeb has been learning guitar under the Suzuki method since he was seven.
