What an incredible weekend as ECC celebrated our FIFTH anniversary by winning big at YAGP finals! Words can’t describe what a big thing these kids did this week and how much they’ve truly accomplished. Congratulations to all our faculty for the hard work they put in and to our kids for incredible performances and for their kindness, humility, manners, and overall integrity that person after person came to me and complimented them on. Congratulations for that and so much more!
The highest award given in the whole competition was the Youth Grand Prix award and it was given to our Alexei Orohovsky!! We are so proud of him!
