Yeou-Cheng Ma, Executive Director, Children's Orchestra Society

50th anniversary gala performance at carnegie hall

The 2019 Gala will be held on June 20, 2019 at Carnegie Hall, featuring all orchestras, COS Senior Discovery winner Darren Yang, Bass, guest artist Ray Chen, Violin.


Several Garden City students spent the summer traveling abroad with a local youth orchestra, The Children’s Orchestral Society.

Abigail and Emma Benzinger, Savannah Ma, and Nathaneal Lau were among the members of the orchestra and enjoyed a three city tour of China.

The Children’s Orchestral Society is operated by Dr. Yeou Cheng Ma and Michael Dadap. Dr. Ma is the elder sibling of internationally renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma. This trip was timed with the opening of the Yo-Yo Ma museum at the Ma’s ancestral home in Ningbo. The tour was entitled “Home Return” and was a truly great event.

Read Yeou-Cheng Ma's interview with the epoch times

"ROCKVILLE CENTRE, N.Y.—Nothing is as adorable as the sight of small children performing pizzicato in unison (or almost in unison). 

Family and friends packed into the Madison Theatre at Long Island’s Molloy College on June 15 for a very out-of-tune, very endearing performance by the Kinder Orchestra, most of whose members are under the age of 6."
