“Awesome!” is how our daughter describes her involvement with the Jewish Federation’s Jewish Youth Orchestra (JYO). My husband and I feel the same. Through her, we have all learned so much about Jewish music and culture, and our family’s circle of close Jewish friends has broadened. Our daughter’s musicianship has also grown exponentially, thanks to her extraordinary JYO teachers: Janice and Roni. They set a very high bar and engage them with a wonderful repertoire of Jewish music.
