“At first, when I got accepted [to The People’s Music School], I didn’t totally understand the big deal. But at orientation, I learned about Rita [Simó] and people camping outside in long lines just for a chance to get in the school. I know how lucky I am to be a People’s person. I can’t wait to master the clarinet and make TPMS proud.”

Sofia R., Clarinet, Back of The Yards
