NEW YORK — Two subway-inspired compositions written by New York City high school students are being performed at Lincoln Center.

Maestro Alan Gilbert is leading the New York Philharmonic at Avery Fisher Hall on Wednesday as it performs "Brooklyn-Bound F Train" by Ethan D'Ver and "Sixty-Sixth Center" by Stella Fiorenzoli.

The 16-year-olds are both juniors from Fiorello LaGuardia High School of Performing Arts.

The compositions are being performed during the Philharmonic's School Day Concerts series, which runs through Friday.

D'Ver's piece captures the sounds of the F train rumbling through three boroughs. Fiorenzoli's was inspired by the No. 1 train at 66th Street.
