Andreï Feher, Artistic Director, Kitchener-Warterloo Symphony
The role that JFP has played in my life is enormous. My fondest memories come from those years. Making music with friends was incredibly rewarding. We spent a lot of time outside of academic classes playing and singing 3 nights a week and it motivated me to listen to more music and to become curious with the teachers we had. I also can’t forget the 2 European tours with the orchestra in 2006 and 2008 which were above all social experiences and adventures filled with happiness and music. It was at the school that I had my first experiences of conducting with all the ensembles and it opened a door that I did not know before.I thank all the teachers who guided me and helped me develop my curiosity and love for music.
