Stand By Me Length: 5:27

What happens when a symphony featuring cello soloists plays a hard rock song from the '80s?  Watch and see!  Fun twist on the old symphony.

Miri Ben-Ari VS. the devil Length: 1:02

Leave it to marketing to put a new twist on an old standard!  This may be a commercial, but it's a very cool demonstration of taking something old and making it new again.  A fresh take for the new generation...Charlie Daniels' "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" is re-vamped into a fued and fusion between hip-hop and hard rock.  A little bit country, a little bit rock 'n roll a little bit city, this is an illustration of the American melting pot at work.

An impressive 6 year old Length: 4:00

This 6 year old violinist is impressive as he plays Vivaldi's violin concerto in a minor from Suzuki book 4.  My students who have studied this piece have been age 14 and up.  It is standard repertoire at about 2-4 years or so of study.

3 year old makes world stage debut Length: 9:58

Now this 3 year old is nothing short of astonishing!  We may have another Mozart on the scene...the piece he is playing is used for Jr. High auditions for Dauphin County orchestra.  (Kuchler concerto in G major.)  Listen to his story told by the famous violinist and orchestra maestro Andre Rieu (actually, read the subtitles-it's not in English.)  You never know what can come of taking a child to a concert!
