"The Dorothy Gerber program influenced our son in numerous positive ways! Our son joined the program at age 8 and stayed involved for eleven years. He went from a beginner to a topnotch musician who enjoyed ensemble music camp over the last two summers. We are extremely grateful to the program for providing free classes and scholarships on rental instruments. Without the support of the Gerber family, our son would not have become the fine cellist that he is today..."
