The 92Y School of Music Orchestra has gone through many transformations over its history that spans nearly a century; one underlining vision has remained the same: to provide opportunities to talented amateurs who have entered other professions to continue developing their musical talents and to offer aspiring young artists an opportunity to hone their skills on their road to professional careers.

The orchestra is made up of a wonderful core membership that has been with us for as long as 15 years! The orchestra has had illustrious soloists such as Gil Shaham and David Krakauer when they were up-and-coming young artists and the distinguished roster of Music Directors from Yaacov Bergman to Sean Kubota attests to the great quality of musicianship that is created every week at 92Y. Our new Music Director, Tomo Matsuo, is a Juilliard and Yale trained artist with much experience in the music world as a pianist and conductor. We are all excited to see what the 98th season brings and hope you will be joining us—in the audience, if not on the stage. The orchestra is once again free to all members. Hope to see you soon.

–Yana Stotland,
Director, 92Y School of Music

Concert: Sun, Apr 19 at 7 pm in Buttenweiser Hall.
Program will include the Winner of the Concerto Competition.
