“To have Mr. Stravinsky in residence for this past week, and conducting part of this evening’s program, we have brought to our students the most illustrious example of an individual who exemplifies both the knower and the doer. The impact of his presence upon the minds of our students is incalculable”
– Walter Hendl, Director, Eastman School of Music
