On April 7 Jon Deak was honored by the InterSchool Orchestras of New York for his innovations in music education, in particular the creation of Very Young Composers at the New York Philharmonic.

The ceremony was held at a gala ball at Chelsea Piers. Anne Fitzgibbon, herself an innovator in the creation of the Harmony Program, inspired by the El Sistema youth orchestra movement, presented the award.
