    I just got a 9 DVD collection of Leonard Bernstein's Young People's Concert series. What a treat to see the New York Phil brass section on these. Vachianno, Ware, Prager et al are all seen up close! The series is chock full of all your favorite pieces. A great find!

    I love these but have not made it all the way through them yet. I am using them as my "text book" for a middle school Music App class I teach, they are a great set of videos!

    i love these too, i dont own them but have shown them a lot as a substitute teacher.

    one thing i have found is that some of the dated referances need to be explained to the kids and how the meaning of the word gay has changed, or they start laughing uncontrollably.
