SCARSDALE, N.Y. -- Hoff-Barthelson Music School announced its twentieth annual Elaine Stamas New York Philharmonic Educational Residency, featuring members of the New York Philharmonic, on Sunday, April 10, at the Music School, 25 School Lane.

Students at all levels of proficiency are encouraged to explore the unique pleasure of making music with fellow young musicians.
