In "Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra," producer/director Robin Lehman focuses on the uniqueness of each individual instrument, from its creation by the manufacturer to the musician who skillfully channels the sound. Narration by conductor Andrew Davis and interviews with acclaimed musicians such as Yo-Yo Ma provide insight and flavor to describe the instruments and their role in the sound of each orchestra. The in-depth approach not only reflects Lehman's award-winning filmmaking, but also his 10 years of study in Paris with Nadia Boulanger on musical composition.

Lehman and Davis conclude The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra with a rendition of Benjamin Britten's monumental work of the same title, exemplifying the beauty and magnificent nature of the orchestra in its finest and most glorious moment - performing in concert.
