''... The World Youth Choir is HOME to every young human being, the opportunity to make music and friends with the most promising and wonderful persons and musicians around the world. Wherever you go, you can be sure to have a friend for life, to have a home. Making music at a professional level at an early stage in life is the most wonderful thing a musician can do. You will never forget this life-changing experience as long as you live!''
