Three days after I leave the Walden School Young Musicians Program, I start to count the days until the next summer.

This past year was my fourth year attending the program in Dublin, New Hampshire. Walden is my home away from home. Every year at Walden, I experience new and interesting kinds of music and the education I receive is incredible. The teachers do an amazing and thorough job working with the students. They work with each student to help them become better musicians as well as better people. Seth’s leadership and dedication is fantastic.

Between the friends I make at Walden and the hard work I put in to create the final festival composition, the five weeks at Walden is always extremely satisfying and special.

I take the knowledge I acquire at Walden into the rest of my year, and it makes my life better. I want to thank all the people who contribute and donate to Walden. All the things I love about my summers in Walden would not happen without you.

Thank you,
– Karina
