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.
