“What Ilona’s GetClassical In School achieves with its initiative, goes beyond the one-time exposure of youth to classical music. Each encounter creates the sort of in-depth emotional engagement between students and guest musicians that can result in sparking lifelong interest in music. It is reasonable to assume not many of the kids, who experience GetClassical in School will necessarily go on to follow a professional path in music, but I am almost certain that they will become music lovers.

That is an important component of early age music exposure – it creates future audiences, while enriching people’s lives with appreciation of something timeless, meaningful and beautiful. i will love to partake in the next GetClassical In School encounter.”
