"I had a wonderful experience attending the Symphony for Youth concert. This was my first time leading our schools trip to the symphony. I was quite impressed by the organization and easy process, from the reservation of tickets back in November all the way to getting back on our buses after the concert. Historically, the Westby Area School District has brought the 3rd grade class to see the LSO’s Symphony for Youth concert, and I can tell you with confidence that this tradition will continue."

– Laura Macky, General Music, K-4 and 6, Westby Area School District
