Review for Pro Musica Youth Chorus, Oak Park, IL, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

I used to be proud that my daughter belonged to this organization. I no longer feel this way. The group was chosen to perform at Carnegie Hall. The week before the performance the musical director posted the names of all the students who were not prepared for the show. This was done ina very coarse and insensitive way. The music directors are not warm and friendly people. I overlooked this matter since my kid seemed to be having a positive experience. Look elsewhere if you want a thoughtful and caring experience for your child. There is no concern for individual support. the group just wants to look good when they perform in public.

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

facing the frustrations of sending my child to several practices and being told one week before the show that she could not perform.

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

have never agreed to send my child on the Carnegie hall trip.

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

not very sympathetic or sincere.

Ways to make it better...

If the music directors had better communication skills.

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

that the music directors are divas. The board members can't figure out why parents get upset.

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

I will never have anything to do with this organization again.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
