As a complement to their music curriculum, more than 50 string students and their parents recently attended an evening performance of the New York Philharmonic at David Geffen Hall in Lincoln Center.

Attendees enjoyed the orchestra’s renditions of Wagner’s epic “Ride of the Valkyries” and “Die Walkure,” Sibelius’ “En Saga,” as well as selected songs by Strauss, featuring soloists Eric Owens and Heidi Melton.

The trip, which was coordinated by Director of Music and Fine Arts Michael Caravello, provided the opportunity for the student-musicians to take in the sights and sounds of professional musicians.
