    This was an incredible experience that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. I am recommending it strongly to everyone I know as the best music camp I’ve ever attended. This experience helped me get in touch with my roots while at the same time understanding and contributing to it as a living breathing tradition. I have a lifetime of material to work on! I made contact with people who love and cherish this music as much as I do, and I’m so grateful. — Marguerite-Marie Ostro, Scholarship Student
