The New York Philharmonic is back in picturesque Colorado for its 13th annual summer residency at Bravo! Vail.

The ever-witty Bramwell Tovey led two programs — one with pianist Jon Kimura Parker, the other with pianist Anne-Marie McDermott — and former Philharmonic Assistant Conductor Joshua Weilerstein reunited with the Philharmonic and his sister, cellist Alisa Weilerstein, for Tchaikovsky. Plus Philharmonic musicians worked with the Very Young Composers of Vail.

[Insert Bow Hair Joke]: Vail Twitpic Becomes WQXR Photo of the Day

Yesterday a twitpic (a photo posted on Twitter) by violinist Sharon Yamada of three Orchestra members horsing around on an off day in Vail has gone viral. It is everywhere.

Well, not by mass pop-culture standards. But the tweet was favorited and retweeted quite a bit, and WQXR made it their Photo of the Day.

"Spotted near Vail, Colorado: New York Philharmonic violists Rebecca Young and Rémi Pelletier and violinist Sarah Pratt rehearse on horseback," the WQXR story began. It closed with an interesting riff on "another famous fiddler with a love of horses: Eugene Fodor Jr., the flamboyant virtuoso who was dubbed the 'cowboy violinist" during the 1970s and '80s.'" Follow the link for the whole story.
