2017 Tour to Argentina 
and Uruguay
Let me write you, the reader, something memorable. Let me tell you about the times when my life had changed drastically. Let me preach to you the highlights of the MYSO 2017 tour.
Having fabulous dinners every night with the musicians that I have grown to call my family puts the jewels on the tour crown. We all worked countless hours to prepare this music, we all poured our heart and soul into every note we played, and we all connected with every down beat. 

The bond between all of us was only strengthened with every passing day. Over the course of the tour I've met so many different personalities . . . new people within our chaperone group who I had never  really known, or dancing tango with someone I had never met. All of those personalities came together to form this group that I would never regret being a part of.
- Livia Romanov, Senior Symphony violist
