Conducting powerhouse David Robertson will lead the young ensemble—comprised of promising players from across the country—in an event that will double as a live recording for the NPR program From the Top (with host Christopher O'Riley). Tickets are free, but must be reserved ahead of time by visiting artscenter.org or calling 914-251-6200. The following week, the orchestra makes its Carnegie Hall debut (again with Robertson), with a concert featuring Bernstein's Symphonic Dances from West Side Story, Britten's Violin Concerto, Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition (in Ravel's orchestration) and Samuel Adams's Radial Play.
