Life with Music
"Music can be an incredibly important and enriching aspect to anybody's life, and my belief in this informs the programs we create explicitly for kids, as well as my decision to speak to the audience at one of our 'regular' concerts about a piece we are about to play. I really don't draw a line between what is and what is not education. It all relates to the New York Philharmonic's primary mission: to expose people of all ages to the beauty and the power of music."
