We will have flyers for you this Saturday to promote the concert.
Here are a few videos we recommend.
This one is Natalie playing her concerto with a piano accompanist. This will help you get more comfortable with what to expect for tempos etc.
This one is Joshua Bell playing the concerto. It's set to start at the third movement. And it's the United States National Youth Orchestra playing for The Proms, which is a series of concerts put on in the Royal Albert Hall in London. Pretty cool video!
And, just to be fair, here is also Lorin Mazel conducting the New World Symphony. Both are the New York Phil, about a decade apart.
I couldn't find a video of Leonard Bernstein conducting it... plenty with just audio, but these videos are so informative! Especially the different conducting styles.
I haven't heard from Mr Dunn on what he's planning to do or not do, so just come prepared for everything and practice like crazy!
And here's a bonus video. I remember the song from my teen years. Among other things, it helps you remember how to pronounce Leonard Bernstein! Your parents might remember it! :)
Keep practicing! It's worth it! See you Saturday. 8:30 to 11:30.
Shout out: thank you to the very awesome people who come help me set up! It's generally the same group of students, and you are wonderful!
