I have been so pleased and honored to have had students in the Sempre Musick Competition for the last several years.  The organization is extraordinarily professional, very polite, and a joy to work with.  Whenever one of my students is invited to perform with their orchestra, I know the student is going to have an amazing musical experience.  

In 2023, I was thrilled to watch my 16-year old student Millie perform Mozart and my ten-year old student Myla perform Vivaldi.  The conductors of the Sempre Orchestra always have such a generous energy and the students learn so much.  

Thank you to Sempre Musick, and best of luck to the teachers and students!!

I just wanted to reach out and say thank you very much for creating Sempre Musick and giving young musicians a chance to perform with a professional orchestra.  My son Spencer performed on May 27 and it was one of the best performances he’s done.  It was a dream come true for me as his first teacher/mom and Spencer will always remember this experience.  

I wish you many more successful programs in the future!

From the bottom of our hearts, we would like to thank you for giving John the opportunity to play music with your wonderful orchestra. The spirit of belonging to something very elaborate, very high-class gave him an impulse to do a hard work in striving for perfection. Without that he would never be willing to spend so much time and effort in mastering his piece.

Thank you for the great job in giving motivation, satisfaction, and just simple pleasure of doing his best in playing the music.

Thank you especially for your warm and friendly greeting for John at his introduction to the process of working together with the orchestra, when he felt tense and unsure of himself.

I have had an amazing experience with Sempre Musick for the past three years! The competitions and winners’ recitals are well organized.

This is my first time playing with an orchestra. It is fun and valuable experience. I’d like to come back next year.

Participating in the concerto event has been an incredible experience! Thank you for providing this exceptional opportunity that enabled my six-year-old son to engage with a professional orchestra at such a tender age. This unique event allowed him to enjoy collaborative performances and cultivate his attentive listening skills.  

We are looking forward to future events and concerts that feature a greater variety of composers!
