Young Afghan musicians in NY for date at Carnegie

Young musicians from a school in Kabul, Afghanistan, rehearse for a Carnegie Hall concert with musicians from Scarsdale High School in Scarsdale, N.Y., on Monday, Feb. 11, 2013. The Afghan Youth Orchestra, many of whose members are not far removed from eking out a living on the streets of Kabul, is on the New York leg of a U.S. tour that melds Western classics with traditional Afghan music. About 50 players held a joint rehearsal Monday with 25 members of the Scarsdale High School orchestra, which meant that young musicians from a war-torn country where music was banned for several years by the Taliban were playing alongside those from one of New York’s toniest suburbs.
