Our gala concert is quickly approaching!  If you would like to complete an ad for the Playbill (for the December 14, 2014 concert) please click here:



The GMYS Summer Series consists of performances by our chamber groups once a month at different venues in Miami. Our aim is to bring to light the vast and unique musical talent Miami has to offer. #playmiami incorporates things we love about our community in addition to music such as palm trees, sunsets, the ocean and flamingos!

First  on the calendar is a performance for the 3rd Annual Underwater Festival at the Science Museum on Sunday June 8th from 1-3pm.


How long were you in GMYS?
7 years
What instrument do you play?
What school are you going to next year?
How did you feel through the interview process for the Smiddy Scholarship?
Extremely nervous, but confident. Not to sound conceited, but I had a good feeling that I had a good chance to win.
Are there things you did that made you feel like you deserved to win?
Yes, I went to GMYS rehearsals all the time. I even went on my birthday, that’s how dedicated I was. I was always there to volunteer as well.
Do you have certain rules you stick by every day to help you stay on the right path to achieve your goals?
Don’t get distracted and stay focused.
What are your long term goals? 
To graduate college. Actually, to get a job too. Hopefully after college, I’ll become a nurse working at Miami Children’s so I can live around the Gables. Or… travel the world.
How was prom?
Amazing, so much fun. I thought I was best dressed.
How did you feel at our Season Finale Concerts?
I felt emotional. Honestly, I was more emotional about the GMYS final concert than the finale for my school orchestra.
What are you most excited for in college?
Meeting new people and experiencing a new chapter.
Advice to younger GMYS peers?
Stay focused and stay committed to whatever you do.
Last words?
