Melodies of Christmas bids farewell to Helen Cha-Pyo

Helen Cha-Pyo

Those who have watched the Melodies of Christmas each year know Helen Cha-Pyo as the central figure on the stage, who makes the music happen.

This year, though, is her last as the music director of the Empire State Youth Orchestra.

For 16 years, Helen has waved her baton like a magic wand, teaching, inspiring, and motivating young musicians to give it their all.
