We are pleased to announce additional opportunities for young musicians to participate in the National Youth Orchestra of the United States of America.
This season we will be offering three apprenticeships—a music librarian, an orchestra manager, and a conductor—for students ages 16–19, who meet NYO-USA’s eligibility requirements. Learn more
NYO-USA also seeks an assistant conductor, from candidates ages 20–35, to support the program’s orchestra director, instrumental faculty, and conductor, both during the residency and on tour. Learn more
Each summer, Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute brings together 120 of the brightest young players from across the country to form the National Youth Orchestra of the United States of America. Following a two-week training residency with leading professional orchestra musicians, these remarkable teenagers not only have the opportunity to play on the famed stage of Carnegie Hall but also embark on a tour to some of the great music capitals of the world, while serving as dynamic musical ambassadors.
In 2015, NYO-USA performs in spectacular cities across China under the baton of Charles Dutoit and with pianist YUNDI.
