During the Berlin Philharmoniker’s 17 day stint in New York this month, the orchestra is working with several of the city’s “high brow” cultural institutions – Carnegie Hall, MoMA, the Guggenheim and the Department of Education. Reporter Veralyn Williams spent the last 3 weeks following a group of high school students as they prepare to perform this weekend with members of the Berlin Philharmoniker. They’re created an original work inspired by Stravinsky’s "The Rite of Spring."

You can catch the students this weekend at the United Palace Theater. The project is a partnership between Carnegie Hall and the Berlin Philharmoniker.
