"The opportunity to work on challenging and beautiful music with trained teachers is an excellent way for youngsters to spend the summer. We are grateful to the Borough of Madison for including arts programming in the mix of vacation recreational activities, and thankful to the Madison Board of Education for providing the support necessary to put up a show. Audiences will be in for a treat."
