About Rick Scott’s My Symphony concert:

“The transformation in the children who participated in this unique collaboration throughout the past fall and spring was a privilege to witness and guide. The inspiration, confidence and new level of musical awareness it brought to the 45 children in the choir and to the 2000+ children who watched their exuberant, engaged and polished performances on stage was invaluable.” – Patricia Plumley, choir director
