Juror Pamela Frank told the finalists, "I think this week was one of the most thrilling weeks of my life; I'm reminded how lucky we are to be musicians. You spoiled us rotten, you violinists! I was listening to you on the highest level; then I was reminded how beautiful it is to play with such abandon and innocence, and I would urge you to keep that. Keep doing what you're doing."
