and the world, including listeners to WCLV, went to the YouTube web site and
voted for the best to perform at New York City's Carnegie Hall on April 15, 2009 under
the direction of Michael Tilson Thomas.
The five CIM students/alum are: Alexandra Early, violin; Ben Odhner, violin;
David George, bass; Joel Negus, bass; and Karla Donehew, violin (CIM alum).
