One of the gems of the music world, The New York String Orchestra Seminar is an awesome group of young musicians that come together once a year to be immersed in great music and instruction, culminating in concerts at Carnegie Hall. It was founded by Frank Salomon who created the seminar in 1969 for Alexander Schneider, one of the great musicians of our time. I participated in the program when I was in college and it changed my life. I go back whenever I can to coach and in this instance, conduct  a sectional. These kids are the best musicians in the country and the program led by Jamie Laredo is a true gem. Above are some photos from the sectional at the Manhattan School of Music courtesy of Allen Cohen. They really inspired and excited me to make all of those faces!!  Learn more about the seminar here.  http://www.newschool.edu/mannes/subpage.aspx?id=30433
