“I wish I could get up on the stage and thank each and every musician for this concert . . . I’m so happy I discovered you.”
“I've played in many community orchestras and this is the only one that consistently has a full house, which I love!"
“I wouldn’t have picked up my instrument again without ONA. I needed this group.”
“I am extremely grateful that there is an orchestra of this caliber in my community. If not for ONA I would never be able to play my instrument in a group without traveling prohibitive distances.”
“It’s beautiful to play and inspire other people.”
"I learned more in the last year of being in ONA than I have in seven years of playing violin . . . I never want to stop playing music. "
