Review for MIDWEST YOUNG ARTISTS, Highwood, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Both of our daughters enjoyed MYA for 8 and 9 years, through grade school and high school. They participated in multiple orchestras, choruses and chamber groups. MYA was such an important part of their life, and the one activity that we never had to "prod" them to do -- every Saturday morning and Sunday afternoon they were ready to spend the day at MYA with friends, learning and performing great music with excellent conductors and teachers. MYA exposed them to so much, including other cultures via performance tours to Spain, Portugal, China and South Korea. The lessons learned from MYA have extended far beyond music -- the benefit of hard work; pursuing your passion; trying new things; and being with peers who share your interest and commitment.

Role:  Board Member & Volunteered in numerous activites over ten years (transporting instruements and equipment, selling tickets, serving on the board, assisting backstage during concerts, etc.).
