The Young People’s Philharmonic at Allentown Symphony Hall

This past Sunday I had the pleasure of once again taking photographs backstage with the very talented and delightful young musicians of The Lehigh Valley Young People’s Philharmonic and Junior String Philharmonic.  Jerry and Nancy Bidlack have been giving children the opportunity to participate in this challenging orchestra for over 30 years.  Even after years of observing the Bidlacks at work, their patience and dedication to the education of young musicians still amazes me.  There are no easy adaptations or arrangements of classical pieces played here — just “unadulterated classics.”
