• Residency and Tour

    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.

    2014 Tour

    The tour begins with a performance at the Performing Arts Center in Purchase, NY, followed by the orchestra's Carnegie Hall debut in New York City, 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. Full details of the orchestra's coast-to-coast tour can be found below.
