Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute will bring together the brightest young players from across the country in the summer of 2013 to form the National Youth Orchestra of the United States of America. Following a comprehensive audition process and a two-week training residency with leading professional orchestra musicians, these remarkable teenagers embark on an international tour to some of the great music capitals of the world, led by a different conductor each year.
During NYO-USA’s inaugural season, famed maestro Valery Gergiev leads the orchestra with Joshua Bell as violin soloist to Washington, DC, Moscow, St. Petersburg, and London. Interested applicants can register to apply now, as well as preview audition excerpts and a sample audition video.
