The New York Youth Symphony
"America's best youth orchestra." --The New York Sun

"Music is not illusion, but revelation rather. Its triumphant power lies in the fact that it reveals to us beauties we find nowhere else, and that the apprehension of them is not transitory, but a perpetual reconcilement of life." -Tchaikovsky

"Everywhere in the world, music enhances a hall, with one exception: Carnegie hall enhances the music."
-Isaac Stern

"The New York Youth Symphony often gets compared to professional orchestras, and one can hear why."
--The New York Times

"Its music making is alive and full; they have a freshness and a drive that seasoned ensembles are going to rediscover only very occasionally."
--The New York Times

"Their level of technical and musical accomplishment is remarkable."
--The New York Times
