I wasn’t really a musician. I thought I would do sports, but after a while it felt good and I felt happy that I was learning to play music.

Sofia Hashemi-Asasi

Her experience illustrates the symphony’s mission of enabling young musicians to perform classical pieces at an advanced level.

As unlikely as it seems music can change your life a lot. It gives you confidence and it also gives you hope to know that if you really want something you can make it happen.

Kirusha Lanski

14 yrs old | percussion

Meeting and playing with people who are more experienced musicians than I am inspires me to work even harder in achieving my music and academic goals

Susan Lee

12 yrs old | violin

Studying music has helped me with school because it teaches you to concentrate really well. I’m not really sure about my future, but I do know that math and music will definitely be a part of it.
