“I have to tell you that I get teary reading the incredible feelings conveyed in posts from kids, staff, parents, and adult attendees about belonging, acceptance, relaxing their defenses, immersing themselves in the present, in the music, in the friendships; the pure joy of meeting and bonding with people. I know you understand what you do for these kids and yes it is about the music. But with that comes so much more. You influence these kids for life!!!!”

“I am so impressed and inspired by the level of energy and commitment everyone brings to MWROC! This is truly the highlight of my year and one of the finest moments not only for me but for all my wonderful faculty and staff as well. It has been a vision of mine for many years to provide a place for innovation, inclusiveness, experimentation, freedom of expression, and exploring roads less traveled. It is incredibly exciting for me to watch my vision take roots and grow to such amazing heights… thank you for being part of it!”
