Announcing the National Youth Orchestra of the United States of America

Carnegie Hall announces the launch of the National Youth Orchestra of the United States of America, a major new initiative that will bring together the most talented young orchestral players from across the United States. Created by Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute, NYO-USA provides an opportunity for 120 exceptional young musicians (ages 16–19) from across the US to come together with their peers, supported by a faculty of leading professional orchestra musicians and a different celebrated conductor each year, for a two-week intensive musical residency, followed by an international tour to top music capitals around the world.

“I look forward to getting to know many new, gifted musicians—sharing ideas, learning together, and going on a cultural journey.”

—Valery Gergiev, inaugural conductor for NYO-USA
