Seeking instrumentalists ages 16–19 for a tuition-free experience of a lifetime
“Gergiev was clearly proud of his talented fledglings, and he was right to be.” —The Telegraph
This summer, 120 of the country’s brightest young musicians came together for the first time as the National Youth Orchestra of the United States of America. Touring with famed maestro Valery Gergiev and renowned violinist Joshua Bell, they performed in Washington, DC, Moscow, St. Petersburg, and London, “with electric commitment” (The Guardian).
NYO-USA is now recruiting for its second season. In the summer of 2014, NYO-USA will make its Carnegie Hall debut before embarking on a coast-to-coast US concert tour with conductor David Robertson and violinist Gil Shaham. You can audition to be part of this exciting tuition-free program by applying now. Visit carnegiehall.org/nyousa for audition materials. The application deadline is November 15.
Follow the orchestra’s Facebook page today in order to get a behind-the-scenes look at the NYO-USA experience.
