I often visit the VS. Am pleased with the time dedicated in putting shows together. Talent a def. plus. Administratively, lacking some in organization. New group...with some time...I know it will be a much greater program. Keep up the good work.

We went with our children's private school to the symphony and it was a great experience. The children loved the music and learning about the instruments. We will visit again.
