A COVID-19 alternative to performing turned a recording meant to keep young musicians connected to their craft into a historic Grammy Award for conductor Michael Repper and the 70 members of the New York Youth Symphony (NYYS) who played on the album, including highly acclaimed pianist Emily-Jane Luo, a Scarsdale High School senior.

The Feb. 5 Grammy win was historic as it was the first time a youth symphony had won the award for Best Orchestral Performance.
