Marlon Daniel: 'Philadelphia Orchestra with Maestro Simon Rattle'

Marlon Daniel writes:
Following  an amazing concert of the Philadelphia Orchestra conducted by Maestro Sir Simon Rattle, hailed by many as the number one Conductor in the world, we had an opportunity to congratulate him for his many accolades including just to name a few, being knighted by the Queen of England; his educational program with the Berlin Philharmonic, both were appointed International UNICEF Ambassadors, the first time this honor has been conferred on an artistic ensemble.  Prior to the Philadelphia Orchestra performance, Maeston Rattle conducted the Play on Philly Symphony Orchestra, a group of young musicians age 6-13 years from West Philadelphia. He said "I loved working with the young musicians". Maestro Rattle made his Philadelphia Orchestra Debut in 1993.
