I learned more than I ever thought possible! I worked with the most amazing staff of adults ever put in front of me. I have formed friendships I know I will cherish for a lifetime.

It was the most amazing musical experience I have ever had, to work with such amazing musicians, teachers, and people. It has completely changed my outlook on music and on life. Thank you so much for providing such an amazing, exhilarating and life-changing opportunity.

BOA is a phenomenal program, from the competitions, to the two summer camps my son has been to at Illinois State, to the Rose Parade. It is a great learning experience and has aided him greatly in his music, his marching and his leadership.
