New York, New York

We're back from New York. Here are some pictures from around the city.

The Winnipeg Symphony played at Carnegie Hall - a very fine performance - unique music, all Canadian.
R. MURRAY SCHAFER Symphony No. 1 (US Premiere)
DEREK CHARKE 13 Inuit Throat Song Games (US Premiere), Tanya Tagaq, Throat Singer
VINCENT HO The Shaman: Concerto for Percussion and Orchestra (US Premiere) Dame Evelyn Glennie, Percussion

We finished our 7-days there hearing a graduation recital from Rose Francesca dePasquale, accompanied by John Root, a student of Itzhak Perlman and Catherine Cho at Morse Hall in the Julliard School, just hours before we had to be at the airport.
