    The Orchestra performed Prologue and Mambo from Symphonic Dances from West Side Story by Leonard Bernstein, Radial Play by Samuel Adams, and Porgy and Bess: A Symphonic Picture by George Gershwin. Eighteen year-old clarinetist Silvio Guitian from Baltimore, Maryland, performed the first movement, Allegretto, from Sonata for Clarinet and Piano in E-flat major, Op. 167, by Camille Saint-Saëns, with pianist Christopher O’Riley, and the NYO-USA Piano Quartet, again with Christopher Riley, performed the fourth movement, Allegro molto, from Piano Quartet No. 1 in C minor, Op. 15, by Gabriel Fauré.
