Midwest Young Artists provides an amazing musical experience for young people who live in the Chicago area. My children love spending their weekends at the MYA center in Highwood, IL in orchestra rehearsals and chamber music sessions with amazing teachers who really care. They have learned so much, and they have developed lifelong friendships with other children and mentors who share their love of music.
