Last night's LIVE FROM LINCOLN CENTER was an hour concert from the Kaplan Penthouse featuring violinist/conductor Itzak Perlman and the student orchestra from his (and wife Toby's) Summer Camp. With the exception of Bartok,Mozart, and Vivaldi's 4 SEASONS, all the music was from Balanchine ballets: SQUARE DANCE, CONCERTO BAROCCO, and SERENADE.
Students and teacher seem very pleased with each other. They sounded terrific. Perlman did something interesting and wonderful: for the Bach Double Concerto, he had each of the 13 violinists share the second part while he played all of the first. This made me and increase my admiration for Maestro Perlman tenfold.

Thanks very much for the report. I had planned to watch it but became distracted by Kim Clijsters' spectacular third set meltdown on ESPN. Perlman's willingness to spread the attention around to the kids is indeed admirable!
