A review from a former Young Soloist Concert says it all:

“Nothing is more refreshing than attending a concert of young musicians. I can think of several reasons for this: their work ethic, their obvious talent, the total absence of artistic arrogance and swagger, the excitement equally shared between the performers and their parents, and the entire audience’s genuine wish for them to succeed. One has to make allowances for little glitches, but these were few and far between at the Young Soloists Concert.”
Peter Berlin – Music in Victoria
