"Being a part of the Ars Lyrica Houston Young Professionals Society has allowed me to mix and mingle with others who appreciate baroque music. It is a good combination of individuals new to the genre, as well as seasoned baroque music lovers, and this offers various perspectives of the performances when they are discussed during intermission or after the show. It has also allowed me to mix and mingle with the musicians and singers which has enhanced my enjoyment and understanding of the pieces and instruments."- Michelle Stair, YPS Chair
"Besides creating amazing music, this organization provides an education in early music and instruments, and the Young Professionals group can't be beat!" - Gabe G., YPS Member
