Attend summer concerts. "In 1971, a young cellist named Yo-Yo Ma left New York City to spend his summer at the Meadowmount School of Music. He had some reservations – he’d never been away from home before and there was an intense practice regiment that seemed daunting. He got over it fast. Each summer, 200 students between the ages of 9 and 30 attend Meadowmount to learn the lessons and values that Ma, and numerous others, did. You can hear the current students, faculty and alumni in concerts throughout the summer beginning June 29." Also, Itzhak Perlman and Joshua Bell attended.
