2013 Festival Picture Album
What was your favorite part of BRAVO???
..........I liked being able to interact with people who have diverse talents and personalities. I met a lot of new people who I will continue to keep in touch with.....
......... I love being around musicians of my age who were genuinely interested in music and who have the same priorities as I do.........
........Being able to learn music with friends and getting to know the coaches..........
.........Interacting with students and coaches/performers/guest lecturers etc on an equal level. Everyone was learning, everyone was teaching something, also playing with good friends.............
.............. I liked the coached rehearsals - it was a great learning experience......................

What musical accomplishments will you take from BRAVO???
......I have become a much better musician in musicality and skills..............
...I loved playing in the master classes and the music I have learned this week has inspired me to continue chamber music in college................
...... really picking apart a piece, sounding good, being inspired by the great musicianship........
........I have a better grasp in spiccato now - and it has motivated me to continue making progress on it.......

What life lessons will you take from BRAVO???
... If i want to make progress I need to motivate myself completely. I also made a lot of friends.......
......able to accept + give critiques......
....I learned to accommodate with other people better.......
...BRAVO really teaches you how to get along with other people of different personalities, you learn how to compromise and take constructive criticism....
......recognizing criticism that is constructive, accepting the fact that making friends takes effort, learning how to compromise with people, work hard and you will improve........
.........how to work with and get along with people who are very different from you...............
..........I think one of the key things I learned at BRAVO was interaction with other people in group setting. Everyone contributes equally to the ensemble, compromise is essential and everyone's ideas are important.............

Was the coaches' quality to your expectation???
.........I was never really that interested in chamber music before I came to this camp. Now I cant even tell you how exited I am to learn new chamber music. The coaches got so excited about the music and they made me excited about playing. They definitely showed a passion for music...........
................Yes. Each coach had a different viewpoint, we learned much about the piece, playing techniques, working together...
.....Yes, they were great, really helped put things in perspective.......
..................It exceeded my expectations. I learned a lot from them on the very first day. It was great getting opinions from such talented musicians..........

What did you like about the workshop???
...........fulfilling, informative, inspiring, meet many interesting, hard-working people.......
.......everything. I wish I could stay for longer, not too many people - it was great......
.....the atmosphere, not too pressured, but motivational.........
.... a complete surrounding of music - whether it is chamber group rehearsal, individual rehearsal time, concerts at night and teaching of techniques.........
.......I liked having a structured schedule of rehearsal and free time, and I like the evening concerts ( and the receptions, too). I also liked the sport games we played out in the main field........
...........I am glad that this opportunity now exists for Western NY siring players in High School and College..........
...........The independent rehearsal time - it gave us a chance to really voice our options and work together as a group.........
