CYMC was a wonderful experience, and very influential in my decision to
pursue music as a career. The combination of orchestra, chamber music and
solo lessons was crucial for the development of young, serious musicians.
Many of the friends I made there I still keep in touch with on a regular basis
and usually get the opportunity to collaborate with them in future projects. The
summers I spent at CYMC were some of the most memorable and wonderful
moments of my life.
