> GOOD EVENING, AND WELCOME TO NYC ARTS.

I'M ON LOCATION AT THE MORGAN LIBRARY AND MUSEUM LOCATED AT MADISON AVENUE AND 36th STREET.

THE MORGAN BEGAN AS THE PRIVATE LIBRARY OF FINANCIER MORGAN.

ONE OF THE PREEMINENT ART COLLECTORS AND CULTURAL BENEFACTORS IN THE UNITED STATES.

TODAY MORE THAN A CENTURY AFTER ITS FOUNDING IN 1906 MORGAN SERVES AS A MUSEUM INDEPENDENT RESEARCH LIBRARY.

MUSIC VENUE, ARCHITECTURAL LANDMARK AND HISTORIC SITE.

I'M HERE IN THE MAGNIFICENT EAST ROOM.

MR. MORGAN'S LIBRARY, DESIGNED BY A CELEBRATED ARCHITECT OF THE TIME, CHARLES M.

McKIM.

IT'S CONSIDERED BY MANY TO BE HIS MASTERPIECE.

THE BUILDING AS A WHOLE EMBODIED THE IDEAL OF THE UNITY OF ALL THE ARTS, INTEGRATING ARCHITECTURE, SCULPTURE AND PAINTING WHILE USING THE FINEST MATERIALS AND CRAFTSMANSHIP.

IN ADDITION TO FEATURING WORKS FROM ITS OWN COLLISIONS, THE MORGAN FREQUENTLY PRESENTS SPECIAL EXHIBITIONS.

CURRENTLY ON VIEW IS THE EXTENDED MOMENT PHOTOGRAPHED FROM THE NATIONAL GALTRY OF CANADA.

THE FIRST OF A SERIES OF THREE PHOTOGRAPHY SHOWS AT THE MORGAN THIS YEAR.

IF REPRESENTS THE AGE OF PHOTOGRAPHY FROM ITS BEGINNING IN 1839 AND SPANNING A PERIOD OF 180 YEARS.

INCLUDED IN THE SHOW ARE WORKS BY SUCH ARTISTS AS EDWARD MYBRIDGE, GORDON PARKS.

AND EDWARD PORTINSKY.

THEY REPRESENT PHOTOGRAPHY'S ROLE IN ART, JOURNALISM, SCIENCE, THE RECORDING OF FAMILY HISTORIES AND MANY OTHER SUBJECTS.

THE EXHIBITION IS ON VIEW THROUGH MAY 26th.

TONIGHT WE'LL INTRODUCE YOU TO THE ORCHESTRAS OF NEW YORK.

IT IS THE ONLY ORCHESTRA EXPERIENCE FOR STUDENTS TO PERFORM IN AN ENSEMBLE OF THEIR PEERS AND PROGRESS THROUGH A GRADED SYSTEM.

OVER THE COURSE OF AN ACADEMIC YEAR, ISO STUDENTS ARE COACHED THROUGH AUDITIONS, PLACED IN ENSEMBLES AND MEN TOURED BY PROFESSIONAL MUSICIANS THROUGH REHEARSALS AND PERFORMANCES.

IT BEGAN IN 1972 WHEN MOTHER OF A 10-YEAR-OLD SON LEARNING CLARINET, DISCOVERED THERE WERE LIMITED OPPORTUNITIES FOR HIM TO PLAY IN AN ORCHESTRA.

SO SHE TOOK MUSICAL MATTERS INTO HER OWN HANDS OPINION TODAY THE SCHOOLS OF NEW YORK BOAST FOUR ORCHESTRAS, SERVING MORE THAN 300 CHILDREN.

NO CHILD IS EVER TURNED AWAY, BECAUSE OF FINANCIAL NEEDS.

NYC ARTS HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO FOLLOW THE INTERSCHOOL ORCHESTRAS AS THESE YOUNG MUSICIANS DEVELOP A LOVE OF MUSIC TO LAST A LIFETIME.

♪♪

WHEN I'M ON STAGE, I USUALLY FEEL EMPOWERED BECAUSE NOT A LOT OF KIDS GET TO PLAY.

AND NOT A LOT OF KIDS GET TO DO MUSIC.

I FEEL BLESSED TO BE A PART OF SUCH A GREAT GROUP.

A LOT OF MY LIFE IS BUSY, WHEN I GET TO PLAY THE CELLO, IT FEELS LIKE A QUIET MUSIC A.M.

RETREAT.

I FEEL LIKE WE'RE A STRING FAMILY.

I REALLY LIKE IT.

BECAUSE I SEE MY FRIENDS, AND THE SONGS WE'RE PLAYING MAKE ME VERY HAPPY.

EXCEPT FOR SOMETIMES LOVE SONGS.

♪♪

ISO IS UNIQUE IN NEW YORK CITY.

WE HAVE SIX ORCHESTRAS AND TWO BANDS, IF YOU STICK WITH US ALL THE WAY THROUGH HIGH SCHOOL, YOU'RE GOING TO GET THE BEST TRAINING BY GOING THROUGH DIFFERENT ORCHESTRAS AT DIFFERENT PLACES.

.

THE ORCHESTRA CULTURE IS A MIX OF THE COMMUNITY.

YOU MEET ONCE A WEEK.

IT STARTS AT AGE 5 UNTIL 17 OR 18.

THE IDEA IS TO GROW UP TOGETHER IN THIS CULTURE, IN THE ORCHESTRA, IT'S LIKE A FAMILY.

WE HAVE SUCH A UNIQUE PRESENCE THAT WE CAN OFFER A TIERED EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCE THAT'S NOT CONNECTED TO ANY SINGLE ENTITY.

WE PROVIDE OPPORTUNITIES FOR STUDENTS FROM PRIVATE SCHOOLS, FROM PUBLIC SCHOOLS.

WE ARE AN ENTITY THAT CAN BRING LIKE MINDED STUDENTS TOGETHER TO CREATE MUSIC.

FOR ISO, THEY START AT A PLACE WHERE THEY CAN PLAY QUARTER NOTES, AND READ MUSIC.

♪♪

I'M WORKING ON KEEPING MY BOW STRAIGHT IN THE MIDDLE, SOMETIMES WHEN I'M PLAYING, IT GOES ALL THE WAY UP AND I GET FRUSTRATED WITH MYSELF AT TIMES.

IT'S A REALLY TALENTED GROUP OF PEOPLE THAT ARE AROUND ME.

I WOULDN'T SAY ANYTHING OF THAT NATURE.

NOT TO BE PRECOCIOUS OR ANYTHING, WE HAVE A GREAT CONDUCTOR, HE'S REALLY FUNNY, HE'S JUST GREAT.

THEY'RE MIDDLE SCHOOL AGE, HIGH SCHOOL AGE.

THEY'RE JUST STARTING TO COME INTO THEIR OWN THEY HAVEN'T HAD A LOT OF EXPERIENCE PLAYING IN ORCHESTRAS.

THEY HAVE DIFFERENT NEEDS AND HUNGERS FOR EXPRESSION.

I HOPE I CAN BRING THAT OUT.

A MIDDLE SCHOOLKID WILL GO BOOM ON THE VIOLIN, THEY THINK THEY MAKE A LOUD NOISE.

IT'S SWEET.

IT HAS TO BE INTENSE.

I HAVE TO WORK THEM UNTIL IT'S TOO UGLY AND THEN PULL BACK A LITTLE.

IT'S KIND OF FUN TO WORK WITH THAT AGE KID.

FOR ME IT'S ALWAYS FUN TO COME BACK AND WORK WITH THIS ORCHESTRA.

SEE THE NUANCES THE KIDS MAY BE LEARNING AS THEY GO THROUGH, THE TIME THEY WAIT, LISTEN TO EACH OTHER, THEIR INTERNAL RHYTHMIC SENSE.

AS A GUEST CONDUCTOR YOU CAN FEEL IT WHEN YOU WORK WITH THEM.

SOMETHING GOOD IS HAPPENING HERE, CLEARLY.

IT'S FUN TO DO THAT WHEN I WORK WITH ISO.

♪♪

AS A CONDUCTOR I CHOOSE NOT TO SAY WHAT I WANT.

HOPEFULLY THEY'LL FOLLOW.

THE GROUP I CONDUCT CONCERT ORCHESTRA, IS THE TOP OF THE PYRAMID.

AGED EARLY HIGH SCHOOL, LATE MIDDLE SCHOOL.

ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS I TRY TO SHARE WITH THEM IS THAT THE GOAL OF REHEARSAL IS TO COME TO THE REHEARSAL WITH YOUR PART MASTERED SO YOU CAN LEARN EVERYONE'S PART.

THERE CAN BE TRUE COLLABORATION.

♪♪

IN A DAY AND AGE WHERE THEY ARE SO DISTRACTED BY TECHNOLOGY, THEIR ATTENTION SPAN GETS SHORTER, EVERYTHING IS INSTANT GRATIFICATION, CAN YOU PUSH A BUTTON AND FIND SOMETHING ON THE INTERNET.

YOU LOSE THE NOTION OF PURPOSE.

AND MUSIC GIVES THEM PURPOSE.

TONIGHT WE'RE PLAYING CHOSTICOVICH, HE'S AN AMAZING COMPOSER, I THINK EVERYONE CAN AGREE ON THAT.

IF WE'RE LOOKING AT IT FROM A TECHNICAL PERSPECTIVE, IT CAN BE ABOVE THE LEVEL OF SOME STUDENTS.

ONE OF THE CHALLENGES IS BEING ABLE TO PLAY THE NOTES ON THE PAGE.

I'VE SEEN PROGRESS.

I'M TRYING TO WORK ON MY MID AND LOW RANGE.

I WANT A BETTER SOUND WITH, THAT'S WHAT I'M WORKING ON RIGHT NOW.

♪♪

MY FRIENDS TOLD ME ABOUT THE FIFTH MOVEMENT, IT HAS A BIG BRASS PART IN THE FINALE.

IT'S ON MY BUCKET LIST TO PLAY.

IT'S DEFINITELY PERSONAL, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU PLAY THE TUBA, THERE'S SO MUCH BREATH CONTROL INVOLVED.

SOMETIMES YOU CAN FEEL YOUR AIR MOVING INSIDE YOUR BODY, AND CAN YOU FEEL WHEN IT'S NOT RIGHT.

YOU LEARN THINGS ABOUT YOURSELF, NOT JUST THE INSTRUMENT YOU LEARN, WHAT YOU CAN DO.

YOU MAKE IT A GOAL TO GET BETTER AND BETTER EVERY DAY.

WHEN YOU PLAY THE TUBA YOU CAN'T HIDE.

THE MINUTE THAT YOU PLAY THAT NIGHT, EVERYBODY HEARS.

SO YOU'RE EITHER RIGHT OR WRONG.

AND YOU'RE DEFINITELY IMPORTANT.

AND THAT'S WHAT'S SO IMPORTANT ABOUT ORC HESTRAL MUSIC.

YOU'RE PLAYING AS A GROUP, BUT INDIVIDUALLY YOUR PART MATTERS.

SMILE, YOU LOOK OUT THAT WAY,

THE KIDS HAVE MAIN STAGE CONCERTS.

ONE AT THE BROOKLYN MUSEUM FOR THE YOUNGER KIDS, AND THE METROPOLITAN MUSEUM FOR THE OLDER KIDS.

IT'S A BEAUTIFUL PLACE.

IT'S DEFINITELY GOING TO BE AN EMOTIONAL NIGHT.

MY LAST BIG ISO SYMPHONY PERFORMANCE.

IT WAS FUN -- IT WAS A FUN PIECE.

IT'S A PRIVILEGE TO PLAY.

A LOT OF TIMES THAT PRIVILEGE MAKES IT LESS CHALLENGING.

WHEN YOU'RE WORKING TOWARD IT, IT DOESN'T FEEL LIKE A TASK.

♪♪

THIS PERFORMANCE IS IMPORTANT TO ME, JUST GETTING TO PLAY IN FRONT OF PEOPLE, GETTING THE FEEDBACK OF BEING IN A CONCERT ENVIRONMENT.

IT MAKES EVERYONE BETTER.

♪♪

IT'S ACTUALLY KIND OF HARD.

A LOT OF FLAILING.

IT'S FUN, THOUGH.

IT WAS HARD TO FIGURE IT OUT.

IT'S JUST FUN TO GET TO PLAY LOUD.

♪♪ ♪

THEY ARE HAVING FUN, THAT'S FOR SURE.

THE BODY IS MOVING.

THAT'S A WONDERFUL PART.

JUST PLAYING THE ORCHESTRA, PLAYING MUSIC TOGETHER.

THEY'RE BREATHING TOGETHER ON STAGE AS A GROUP.

THAT'S FASCINATING.

♪♪

> I LOVE WATCHING THE KIDS WHEN THEY COME IN, A LITTLE UNSURE, BY THE TIME THEY'RE COMPLETED AND MOVING ON.

THEY REALLY ARE MUCH MORE SECURE IN THE WAY THEY PLAY, THE WAY THEY CAN EXPRESS.

AND THAT'S A JOY FOR ME, AT LEAST.

TO WATCH THAT GROWTH.

I'M GETTING CLOSER AND CLOSER TO GRADUATING.

AND IT KIND OF FELT LIKE, IT WAS NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN, AND I'M DEFINITELY HAPPY TO GET OUT OF HIGH SCHOOL AND START A NEW LIFE IN COLLEGE.

BUT I'M GOING TO MISS THIS GROUP.

♪♪

I DON'T KNOW IF I'D MAKE IT MY PROFESSION, BUT THEN AGAIN I DON'T KNOW IF I'D MAKE ANYTHING MY PROFESSION.

I'M NOT AT THAT STAGE.

IT'S SOMETHING THAT'S FUN, PEACEFUL AND RELAXING.

I WANT TO PLAY FOR FUN AND SEE WHERE IT TAKES ME.

I ALSO HAVE DREAMS.

I WAS THINKING MAYBE I COULD BE A SOLOIST ON MY VIOLIN OR BE IN THE ORCHESTRA FOR THE NEW YORK CITY BALLET AT THE NUTCRACKER.
