Becky Young and Bernstein

Before she became the Philharmonic's Associate Principal Viola, before she became host of the Very Young People's Concerts, Rebecca Young hobnobbed with Leonard Bernstein at a Young People's Concert back when she was a young person herself.

As host of the VYPCs, Becky says she gets to "run around the stage in a fun and lively way, engaging our youngest concert-goers as we introduce them to classical music."
