The following are testimonials from Summer Symphony parents:

"Summer Symphony is a great way for the kids to transition from taking a break from school and music to getting ready to return. We knew it was going to be a great week for her but we were blown away by the end of week show. Wow! We are so lucky to have this organization in our area!"

"NOYO Summer Symphony program provided my child the opportunity to train under world class musicians. She learned techniques that she would not learn in her regular school string program. I highly recommend this camp to all aspiring string musicians."

"Summer Symphony has become something our child looks forward to being a part of every year. The progress the musicians make is impressive, and the ensemble work really seems to bring out their best musicality and teamwork. I can only imagine how much work goes into organizing this camp, which speaks to the tremendous dedication and professionalism of the really cool people make up the staff!"
