National Youth Orchestra
July 10, 2019 - August 1, 2019
Each summer, Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute (WMI) brings together the brightest young players from across the country to form the National Youth Orchestra of the United States of America (NYO-USA), a free program for all participants. Following a comprehensive audition process and a three-week training residency with leading professional orchestra musicians, these remarkable teenagers embark on a tour to some of the great music capitals of the world while serving as dynamic music ambassadors.
In 2019, NYO-USA returns to Europe with conductor Sir Antonio Pappano, performing works by Strauss, Prokofiev, and Berlioz and joined by mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato in select cities. The tour kicks off with concerts at Tanglewood and Carnegie Hall, followed by stops in Great Britain, the Netherlands, and Germany.
