MAESTRO ZANDER on "WHY TOUR?" 

WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT TO HELP THESE REMARKABLE YOUNG PEOPLE SHARE THEIR OWN ENTHUSIASM AND LOVE FOR MUSIC WITH YOUNG ASPIRING MUSICIANS FROM AROUND THE WORLD.

WHY DO WE TOUR?

Emily Chen, violin"One indispensable reason why we go on tour is to share our music beyond the Boston music scene. Every person in this world deserves to be able to go to concerts or surround themselves with music, and with our international tours, we have been able to expand that opportunity for countless individuals. We may be young people, but we have been given the chance to change the world with love, music, and possibility, and that is why our international tours are so important.“  —Emily Chen, violin

Reese Williams, French horn"After being on tour, I see the world differently, and I firmly believe it’s because now, I always keep my head up…When you look up, you notice everything, every last detail. I’ve always looked at my shoes like I was carrying some kind of burden, but now I can’t stop looking up. I feel a little lighter, a little freer, a little more human."  —Reese Williams, French horn
