STUDENT TESTIMONIAL 

From Johanne Nordilus, MFGN award-winning voice student in 2010 and 2011, 2011 graduate of Palmetto Ridge High School, presently attending Florida State University in Tallahassee: “I would like to thank the [Music Foundation of Greater Naples] for all of the wonderful opportunities you provide for young performers like me to grow musically. Through the Scholarship Program I’ve gained performance experience and more knowledge on technique. With the funds that I was awarded I was able to take voice lessons and help pay for my college expenses. This club is a wonderful organization that is helping keep music alive in Naples and giving students the chance of a lifetime to continue to study music. Thank you all for the work you’ve done. I know this organization will continue to change the lives of students for years to come. I truly appreciate all that you do! Sincerely, Johanne Nordilus”
