"I could not have imagined a better summer. The opportunities to learn and hear such incredible music are unparalleled in any experience I have ever had. Tanglewood is always described as a magical place and I could not quite understand this until experiencing it myself. It is indeed magical."
-Carolyn Semes, 2021 Violin Fellow
