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 2014 tour will begin with NYO-USA’s premiere performance at Carnegie Hall (ongoing construction prevented a 2013 performance). The orchestra will then embark on a 15 day coast-to-coast national tour during which the US will introduce its national youth orchestra.
