CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS

Performance Tuesday, July 22, 2014 | 8 PM

National Youth Orchestra of the United States of America

Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
The National Youth Orchestra of the United States of America makes its Carnegie Hall debut in an electrifying program that begins with Bernstein's Symphonic Dances from West Side Story, a great American work that pulses with fiery rhythms but also includes some of the most tender love music ever written. The orchestra is then joined by Gil Shaham for Britten's Violin Concerto, an intense and virtuosic work written on the eve of World War II. Samuel Carl Adams's innovative style is on display in a new work commissioned by Carnegie Hall, and Mussorgsky's perennial favorite Pictures at an Exhibition concludes the program.
