Review for Youth Orchestra Association of Greater Columbus Inc, Columbus, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I became involved with YOGC because it provided my private music students an outstanding opportunity to play with a much larger group than they would find at school. The board has a core of deeply committed individuals but also makes a practice of recruiting some new board members every year, to widen the circle of talent and influence available to help out. The challenge is to really involve all the members, who may wait to be asked to give of their time.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing my private students re-enroll year after year.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

do more to get all students into private lessons.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the many successful events, such as the pops and young people's concerts.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very committed.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

provide private lessons to all the members and expand the preparatory program.

Ways to make it better...

we had more students in the program.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the relatively small number of prospective students.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Columbus is a better place for children because of this organization.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month
