“It was a great honor for our ensemble to perform at the Grand Finale Concert in Boston this past May. This was such a rewarding experience for me and my students…
…I cannot thank CS Music enough for this amazing opportunity for my students. Each one of them who performed is now planning to pursue a career in this field and use this experience and the skills gained in order to make a life in Musical Theater. If you have the opportunity to participate in this Musical Theater Ensemble Competition don’t hesitate! Your students will thank you!”
