"To participate in a group of artists working to achieve their best is a gratifying experience. It is a nurturing experience- to create and find yourself, where there is no judgment but instead an openness to grow. It's great to have the opportunity to be challenged and grow as an artist, to find a home and people that are as passionate as you are." Patrick J. Egan- Ensemble Member, 2005-Current
