Third Street’s Philharmonia
Hosts Swiss Youth Orchestra
“il mosaico”

       hird Street families, faculty, staff and friends
       opened their arms, and their apartments, to host
       a leading Swiss youth orchestra for 11 days last
       May. The 60 members of “il mosaico,” making
 their first-ever trip to the U.S., were greeted with great
 anticipation by the 30 members of our Philharmonia
 orchestra. The Third Street students had been preparing
 since the fall to perform two concerts with their Swiss
 counterparts: one at Washington Irving High School
 and one in White Plains, each with a professional
 guest soloist. Another concert by “il mosaico” would
 feature a Third Street student soloist.
    “That first rehearsal at Washington Irving was
 remarkable,” said Min Sun Kim, Chair of Third Street’s
 Strings Department. “It was as if they had been playing
 together for years.” Maestro Hermann Ostendarp, Music
 Director of “il mosaico,” conducted the combined             More on Page 4
 orchestras. The repertoire—selections from Bizet’s Carmen    2008 GRADUATING SENIORS
 Suites, Saint-Saëns’ Violin Concerto No. 3 in B Minor        in the Chamber Music Program
 and Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 3 in C Minor,             FRONT ROW: Ben Loffreddo,
 Op. 37—was challenging.                                      Maya Harakawa

    “I was a bit nervous to meet so many talented musi-

 observed that the level of teamwork needed could             Koh Kazama, Craig Gordon
 seem “daunting.” But three inspiring concerts and one
 fantastic farewell party later, all proclaimed the inter-
 national youth exchange a resounding success.

   “I had high expectations, but the exchange was even        “IL MOSAICO” perform together
greater than I expected,” said violin student Camellia        at Washington Irving High School

Help Us Find the Missing Score
      ome twenty years ago, Avra Petrides, daughter of pioneering woman conductor
      Frédérique Petrides, contributed several boxes of books and music to Third Street. By mistake, she included

      library and that she had intended to donate to a museum. If you have this missing score or know of its
whereabouts, please call 212-777-3240, ext. 126. We would like to return it to its rightful owner. Thank you.

     Barbara E. Field                      The Mary Flagler Cary Charitable Trust, which is closing in 2009, has been a
     Mr. and Mrs. Irvine D. Flinn
     Donald T. Fox                         staunch supporter of Third Street for more than a quarter century. The Trust
     Lady Barbara Fox-Bordiga              awarded Third Street two generous $250,000 challenge grants to ensure that its            Will be b+w silo
     Bart Freundlich and                   support continues in perpetuity. We met the first challenge—a grant to help
       Julianne Moore                      establish the Barbara E. Field Chamber Music Fund—within less than a year.
     Helmut N. Friedlaender                   Now, we are asking for your help to meet the second $250,000 challenge.
     Peter H. Ghee
     The Nomi Ghez Foundation              No donation is too small. And because the Cary Trust will match your gift dollar for
     Susan Zises Green                     dollar, your gift is worth double to Third Street! Funds will go to our endowment in
     Barbara R. Greenberg /                support of the general purposes of the School.
       The Philanthropic Group, Inc.          As we go to press, we have identified more than 85% of the goal, and must raise an
     Judith Greene                         additional $35,000 to meet the challenge.
