The members of NYO-USA spend the first two weeks of each season on the campus of Purchase College, SUNY. Located in Westchester County just north of New York City, Purchase College has outstanding rehearsal, performance, and residential facilities, including a highly regarded performing arts center that will be the center of musical activities during the residency. The residency includes sectional and full orchestral rehearsals, workshops on musical and non-musical topics designed to complement the focus on tour repertoire, and social/recreational activities, capped by a performance in the concert hall.
The tour begins with a performance at the Performing Arts Center in Purchase, NY (July 20), followed by the orchestra’s Carnegie Hall debut in New York City (July 22), a performance that will be heard by music lovers worldwide via the Carnegie Hall Live broadcast and digital series, created in partnership with WQXR and American Public Media. NYO-USA’s tour continues with appearances at Ozawa Hall in Lenox, MA as part of the Tanglewood music festival (July 24); Schaefer Center for the Performing Arts in Boone, NC at An Appalachian Summer Festival (July 26); the Jay Pritzker Pavilion in Chicago, IL’s Millennium Park as part of Grant Park Music Festival (July 28); Walk Festival Hall in Teton Village, WY (July 30) as part of Grand Teton Music Festival; the recently-built Weill Hall at Sonoma State University’s Green Music Center in Rohnert Park, CA (August 2); culminating at The Music Center’s Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, CA (August 4).
