Joey will attend the University of Pennsylvania with the VIPER Program - Philosophy and BioEngineering. He is a National Merit Scholar and Presidential Scholar Semifinalist and was awarded the Evergreen Music Scholarship and Elaine Liu Music Scholarship. He writes that "MYS showed me what music can really be. Instead of blindly following the tempos, I learned to follow the baton and listen to those around me. MYS gave a supportive, kind community in which musicianship could be fostered. I will remember MYS fondly as the place where my concept of music expanded immensely." We look forward to seeing what you will accomplish!
