• NYO-USA: Coast to Coast

    Now in its second year, the 120 musicians from the National Youth Orchestra of the United States of America will go on an eight-city, coast-to-coast tour with acclaimed conductor David Robertson and violinist Gil Shaham from July 20–August 4.

    Tickets for the orchestra’s Carnegie Hall debut goes on sale to the general public on April 15 at 11 AM.

    The concert program to be performed at all tour venues includes the premiere of a new work from American composer Samuel Carl Adams, commissioned by Carnegie Hall especially for NYO-USA; Leonard Bernstein’s Symphonic Dances from West Side Story; Benjamin Britten’s Violin Concerto featuring Mr. Shaham; and Ravel’s arrangement of Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition.
