Who's In This Mystery Photo?

Elliott Carter, who died on November 5, joined the Juilliard faculty in 1966, and a few years later, this photo of him and two students appeared in this photo by A. V. Sobolewski in The New York Times. Can anyone identify the students? Let us know at (212) 799-5000, ext. 340, or


Here are the names of the members of the class of 1996 in November’s photo (below): from left: accompanist Gary Sojkowski, Pablo Francisco Ruvalcaba, Pawel Cheda, Tracy Dickson Mendez, teacher Bessie Schönberg, Amy Young Kleinendorst, Toshiko Oiwa (with head turned), and Chad Bantner.
