In their own words…
“Being at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts as a student was an amazing experience. You always had the opportunity to perform. Our studio was like a family - we knew each other very well. UNCSA seems to have some kind of magnet that keeps you wanting to come back--I was at the Manhattan School of Music for two years and finally realized how many great things the School of the Arts has. All the students I know seem very happy here. It's a great place!”
