Carnegie hall live
July 22 at 6pm
Here is your chance to hear the best of young classical America, the National Youth Orchestra of the United States of America, a new group made up of the brightest young instrumentalists in our country. After a 2 week residency of rehearsals, they hit the road coast-to-coast this summer. Hear them live at Carnegie Hall, led by David Robertson, in a new work by American composer Samuel Carl Adams; Bernstein's "Symphonic Dances" from "West Side Story"; and Ravel's orchestration of Mussorgsky's "Pictures at an Exhibition."

Weekdays, 1pm and 8:30pm
In a lifetime of listening, most of the music we get to hear is produced as a studio recording. Lovely as these recordings may be, many aficionados will insist that nothing compares with adrenalized performances before live audiences! The School of Music records their musicians live, and then Classical 89 takes great pride in helping those performances have a long and well-deserved afterlife on the radio. We'll put your ears (and maybe even your heart) in the De Jong Concert Hall, the Madsen Recital Hall, and wherever else the faculty and students of BYU may be performing.
