"My years in the OPHB were a key part of my musical development in
high school. It was a such a fantastic and encouraging experience
being in an ensemble of talented, positive and dedicated people.
During my time in the OPHB I learned an incredible amount from the
other members of the band, and I left being a much better and more
motivated musician. Many of these players I continue to play with
