Some of the young musicians of today will become professional musicians, but almost all of them will become part of tomorrow’s educated classical music audience. An interest in and love of classical music is easiest developed early in a child’s life. We believe that the battle to create and maintain that interest through adulthood must be nourished unrelentingly.
