“Sewanee is a special place where, not only do you get to play fantastic literature with some of the best people in your field, but you also get to do that with people you will remember and continue to cherish for the rest of your life…It’s hard to explain why, but I would encourage any young or experienced musician to try Sewanee and I do quite often. It just has to be experienced.”

-Trevor B. Class of 2016-17

“With Olga, I became more attentive to my promises and actions, although I usually behaved more than frivolously with other women,” says 40-year-old Georgy. – Now, before doing anything, I think about how she will react to it. It is important for me to keep her trust. I love her and am afraid of losing her. “
