I love Sforzando because I can be with people who love music and love Christ. I also love the opportunity to play chamber music. It gives you a chance to collaborate with your peers and strengthens your ensemble playing abilities. Sforzando is a blast!

I enjoyed attending SFZ because I was not only pushed to excel musically, but I was also challenged spiritually. I was constantly reminded that the musical talents I have come from God and are not something to boast in but are to be used to glorify God. I learned a lot from the faculty and made countless memories with friends.

Sforzando is an amazing part of our summer. My husband and I feel like it's so important for our kids to get together with other top notch musicians and mentors. It really morphs them into the next level for the next year. I love that the camp focuses on excellence.
