Mikes Music and The Friends of the Vernon Isaac Society would like to introduce Alison Young, the second recipient of the VIMS.   Alison has chosen to pursue her musical studies at the University of Toronto.   A little over two years ago, I heard this saxophone player, and was completely amazed with her sound AND her phrasings.  Alison demonstrated saxophone musical skills of a seasoned player with confidence and impeccable accuracy.  We send her our best wishes and success that is most certain to follow!!
