CDAL is the perfect blend of community, music, and education. It combines all the things I’m passionate about – I never knew a program where I could play my instrument, expose new audiences to classical music, and work with other talented young musicians in my community existed before.–Mai Nguyen, Arts Leader

CDAL has helped me grow not only as a musician but as a person. I have learned to give back to my community, but I’ve received more joy and personal growth in return. That’s a lesson I will apply to my life wherever I go. -Wilson Hsu, Arts Leader
CDAL showed me how important music is – I could see and hear the connection my music made. This experience reassured me that pursuing music in college is the right choice, since it means I can make moments like these happen for so many people. -Julianne Mulvey, Arts Leader
