From Young Players, Mozart and a Spirit of Renewal

The annual Christmas Eve performance at Carnegie Hall by the New York String Orchestra has become as much a holiday tradition for New Yorkers as the “Messiah” performances and festive choral concerts that fill halls throughout December, even though its programs make no reference whatever to the seasonal repertory.

The attraction is in the spirit of renewal that has consistently animated these performances by this ensemble of students, from 15 to 22, who have come to New York from all over the United States and Canada to participate in the 10-day New York String Orchestra seminar. This year the orchestra includes 62 players, and as in past seasons its roster is more expansive than its name suggests, with woodwinds, brass and percussion augmenting the strings.
