It’s that high school band feeling: the audience is super enthusiastic, but outnumbered by the musicians onstage.

How much of this method is unrelenting parental pressure, and how much is learning to do the signature Lang Lang grin? These kids are serious smiling prodigies.

The Philadelphia Orchestra is the first Western orchestra to play Mongolia. A new relationship that’s a lot more exciting than the usual orchestra tour hookups and romantic shenanigans.

Your correspondent got to go to Boston in the winter. A little Bartók and Miami wouldn’t have hurt, though.

A comment on this picture is, “Does she read her sheet music in Japanese or english? Because as an english speaker I prob could play with her if notes are not in english.” True; but what if the score is in Mongolian?

The Colorado Symphony briefly received a flurry of press due to its decision to allow pot smoking at certain select donor events. Now this isn’t officially one of those events, but doesn’t Special Guest “Josh Blue” sound like a particularly potent strain? Elaborating with “Special Guest Comedian” doesn’t really help, either.
