“There isn’t a festival out there like PRISMA when it comes to audition preparation and orchestral performance. As a freelance and auditioning orchestral cellist, I was looking for a high-level program that would boost my excerpt chops. With the help from Maestro Arnold and the high level of the orchestra, I left with not only the confidence to pursue my upcoming audition season, but also with the tools to perform on a new level of sensitivity and professionalism in an orchestra.”

I heard about PRISMA from my friend. We both go to Juilliard. I wanted to go somewhere where I could play a lot in the orchestra, and develop my orchestra playing skills. I’m really enjoying it and PRISMA helped me a lot. The orchestra is great. Every day, from morning to evening, it’s all about music, and I love it. I recommend it to everyone.

“I can’t say enough good things about PRISMA.  It was one of the most inspiring times of my life.  I expected to play some great music, but I didn’t expect the overwhelming feeling of connection and raw emotion performing with Maestro Arnold and the friends with whom I became very close.  It was such a unique experience.  It was in many ways the most enjoyable two weeks I’ve had in a very long time.”
