The Youth Symphony Orchestra of New York is a wonderfully courageous and hardworking organization. At Carnegie Hall on Saturday afternoon, the interracial orchestra of some 85 boys and girls ranging in age from 12 to 20 gave a deserving young performer the chance to make his New York debut as soloist in Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 2.
