“Attending this summer camp was the highlight of my summer, and I wished it lasted a bit longer than three weeks honestly.” (Freddy, cello student)

“The staff was nurturing and supportive and made incredibly strong connections with each of the kids.” (Mary Kay, parent)

“The benefit to the students was obvious - in a few short weeks I noticed how much they were growing in awareness of the music they were creating, and how much they were learning about communicating their love for performance.” (Grant Moss, Smith College Music Faculty)
