The Manhattan School of Music Precollege Philharmonic in Concert

Email a Friend

This week the Young Artists Showcase presents selections from a concert by the teenage, and even and younger, musicians of the Manhattan School of Music Precollege Division Philharmonic Orchestra. Conductor Jonathan Strasser has led the program since 1977.

Members of the Precollege Philharmonic are between 5- and 18-years-old and they perform recitals and concerts throughout the year on a startlingly professional level. This program was recorded at the school's John C. Borden Auditorium.

In addition to refreshing performances from Franck's Symphony in D and the Dvorak Carnival Overture, you'll hear 16-year-old Precollege concerto competition winner Typher Yom as soloist in the Sibelius Violin Concerto. A pair of choral pieces from Brigham Young University serves as a grateful coda to our Thanksgiving Eve celebration.
