Watch: Youth orchestra is stranded at JFK airport, so they….main
…. play Elgar.
Newly posted on Youtube: When musicians of the Boston Philharmonic Youth Orchestra flew to Spain in June 2016 for a concert tour, one of the flight groups was stranded at New York’s JFK airport after their flight was cancelled at midnight. In response, they all took out their instruments.
Check out as 55 out of 120 BPYO musicians played the Nimrod Variation from Elgar’s Enigma Variations in the terminal. The cellos and basses sang their parts as their instruments had been packed underneath the plane! Conducted by the Boston Philharmonic Fellow, Kristo Kondakci.
