The National Youth Orchestra of the United States of America (NYO-USA) and NYO2 welcome New York-area music students to join them in a collaborative musical celebration in NYC. Student orchestra players are invited to play alongside the young musicians from across the country who form NYO-USA and NYO2 this summer. James Ross, NYO-USA Orchestra Director, and Joseph Young, Resident Conductor, will lead the combined forces in rehearsal before the mega-orchestra (comprising 200–300 musicians) gives a performance.
Musicians must register in advance. All participants must bring a signed media release form to the event, and participants under the age of 18 who will be attending without a parent or guardian must also bring a signed permission form.
