My MYO Story

I cannot think of a better way to have spent my Tuesday nights than making music with Mr. Stickley and all of my MYO friends.  It was a way for all of us to escape the chaos of high school and truly enjoy a night of great music.  Mr. Stickley never failed to put a smile on my face during rehearsal.  It was a privilege to work with such an inspiring musician.  Thanks to MYO, I had the opportunity to perform as a soloist at Carnegie Hall.  It was the most rewarding musical experience of my life.  Thank you Mr. Stickley and Mr. McNeur!
