Nicholas Bentz and the MSO

PRISMA 2015 Concerto Competition winner Nicholas Bentz has started his work with the Moscow Symphony Orchestra. Nicholas spoke to Rotary Moscow about his PRISMA experience:


"I have been a student at many different summer music schools, among them some very well known ones. Being at PRISMA was so different. The atmosphere is not as competitive as other camps, and I have been at a lot of them. At PRISMA there is a healthier atmosphere and camaraderie and support between students. I hope to be back at PRISMA next year!"
