"One of the best things about NYSO was the coaching – the amazing coach took such an interest in both the viola section as a whole and each individual player that my technique and musical expression improved daily. As a string orchestra is smaller than the string section of a symphony orchestra, we each receive close attention from our coach and from Damian Iorio, our conductor. This is an amazing opportunity. Damian is inspiring and encouraging, yet expects the best from all of us. I will take his advice and expertise with me throughout my musical career/life."
