“SYO has revealed many gateways in music. The conductors, students, and staff create a welcoming atmosphere making me eager to attend every practice. It is exciting to play with other aspiring musicians. I feel I belong, and I am part of a group with the same goals. All the music I played have had their challenges, when I finally overcome them, the music becomes beautiful and I get a great sense of satisfaction. Over the two years I have been at SYO I have made many friends and am constantly creating more. I am forever thankful for the experience.” –Philip
