Review for New Haven Symphony Orchestra, New Haven, CT, USA
My favorite experiences with the New Haven Symphony Orchestra center on the innovative education programs, which reach an astouding number of children each year. As I am a firm believer in music education and its proven benefits, I am delighted each time I get to witness a child’s first experience with orchestral music. The Music and Meditation program, presented by the NHSO and composer Jin Hi Kim, had an immediate and profound effect on each child it touched. I was grateful to bear witness to these effects. It’s not every day one gets to watch a class of rowdy middle school children meditate peacefully and quietly. The look of concentration on their faces is something I won’t soon forget.
