"The junior fellows program is an amazing learning experience that leaves you so much more confident in yourself than when you came in. I have participated several years and I can tell you it's hard but so much fun. You will learn from the masters in the industry and make life long friends. The director, Brad Simmons, is amazing, he will get more out of you than you ever knew you had. I love the Jr. Fellows program at the O'Neill, I would highly recommend it to any young singer who wants grow in their craft. I have had some of the best times of my life there.
