WORDS FROM YOUNGARTS WINNERS
"YoungArts was really the organization that helped me understand that I could have the courage to be an artist. And through YoungArts Week I actually got a full scholarship to go to Harvard University which really started off my artistic career."
1987 Winner in Classical Music
& U.S. Presidential Scholar in the Arts
"Because of YoungArts, I was awarded a full scholarship to Manhattan School of Music for jazz trumpet performance, I was asked to participate in a master class with one of my biggest heros jazz trumpeter Wynton Marsalis, and I felt endeless supported in all musical endeavours."
