From musician Emilia Dahlin: "I so enjoyed my time during Visiting Artists Week. Clearly, Friends School is a special place, and I enjoyed witnessing the culture and camaraderie that is different from other schools I've visited. The work produced, across the board, in such a short period of time was very impressive."
