Testimonials

I am grateful for the Young People’s Concerts. The kids don’t always know what a gift it is to attend, but the concerts are always well done, and many students would not have this opportunity if it were not offered to schools.

— Teacher, Wilson K-8 School

 

This was a terrific experience. The way the concert was presented was perfect for the age group and was entertaining and educational. 

— Teacher, Tucson Community School
