-Wilson Wong, bass trombone, Manhattan School of Music
"The time I spent at Redlands was a fantastic experience. It was an environment with colleagues, not competitors, all working together towards greatness, from the top to the bottom, without any fear of judgment. The instructors were happy to answer any and all questions, both during classes and even outside of them."

"The Pokorny seminar was an amazing opportunity to be encouraged, inspired, and musically moved by and all-star faculty. I come away from this experience with a new direction at where I want to take my playing as well as a better understanding of the community to which musicians belong. INVALUABLE, thanks!"
