"ESYO is a community of students who love music and are able to pursue their passion with other people just like them. It's been an outlet that has been instrumental in both my musical and personal growth." ESYO musician 2009
“I wouldn’t be where I am today if it weren’t for the training and experience I received from ESYO.” Andy Blanco, ESYO '00, professional percussionist
"Being part of ESYO … some of the most fun and most meaningful moments in my young adulthood. ESYO taught me about work ethic (practice, practice, practice!), teamsmanship, and self-confidence. I hope the students in ESYO today feel the same way!” Sarah Lyman Tichonuk, ESYO ’99
“As an alumnus in the audience … I was stunned by the impressive sound I heard from the orchestra … I could not help but reflect on how important my ESYO years were in developing the musician and person I am today.” Joseph Betts, ESYO ’09
“ESYO Jazz... became a springboard to taking music more seriously.” Dominic Fallacaro, ESYO '04, professional jazz pianist/composer
