This past weekend I had the pleasure of hanging out during dress rehearsal with the talented members of the Lehigh Valley’s Young People’s Philharmonic and Junior String Philharmonic. For over thirty years Nancy and Jerry Bidlack have encouraged aspiring young musicians across the Lehigh Valley.
Having set up YPP’s website several years ago while serving on its Board, I make it a point to attend the holiday concert and update the website photos each year. The children change so much from year to year and it’s fun to see them changing from middle school through the end of high school.
