NYO-USA
Application Information

In 2018, NYO-USA will return to Asia for a tour with conductor Michael Tilson Thomas and pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet.

Apply for an Apprenticeship

Carnegie Hall offers apprenticeships to students in roles beyond instrumental positions in NYO-USA to explore key aspects of the orchestral field.

Deadline: January 12, 2018

Apply for the Orchestra

The National Youth Orchestra of the United States of America (NYO-USA) will invite young musicians ages 16–19 to audition for its 2019 season in September 2018.

Apprenticeship Opportunities

Orchestra Library Apprentice

Orchestra librarians have the important role of preparing all of the music a symphony orchestra uses in rehearsal and performance. This includes researching available editions, ensuring the material is as accurate as possible and marked consistently for all players and conductors, and preparing parts so that bowings are in sync. NYO-USA’s orchestra library apprentice will receive first-hand experience working alongside NYO-USA’s principal orchestra librarian during the orchestra’s residency and tour. The apprentice will also explore this little-known profession through meetings and conversations arranged by NYO-USA with leaders in the field. The interest and background of the apprentice will help shape the experience in order to introduce aspects of the field that are of special relevance.

The successful candidate for this apprenticeship will have a strong interest in printed music, the ability to read full scores, and strong organizational skills and attention to detail.

Orchestra Management Apprentice

This apprenticeship is an opportunity to work alongside NYO-USA’s orchestra personnel manager and other artistic and administrative staff to learn about the planning and execution of an orchestra’s activities in rehearsals and the successful presentation of concerts. Orchestra personnel managers are musicians who serve as the key liaison between and among conductors, players, and other administrative personnel. The apprentice will assist with seating assignments and rotation, rehearsal orders and timings, backstage logistics, and preparation of venues for rehearsals and concerts. He or she will also have a window into the larger planning of an orchestra tour, particularly from the perspective of ensuring that the artistic needs of the musicians are addressed as fully as possible.

The successful candidate will have experience as a member of instrumental ensembles, a general familiarity with orchestral music, and excellent communication and organizational abilities.

Apprentice Conductors

Two apprentice conductors will have a unique opportunity to receive mentoring in orchestral conducting from NYO-USA’s music staff, including Orchestra Director James Ross and the 2018 assistant conductors. They will attend all orchestra rehearsals during the residency, as well as observe sectional rehearsals and faculty coachings. Some aspects of the apprenticeship may be tailored to the musical background of the student chosen, but it is expected that score-study sessions and very limited podium time will be offered. The conducting apprentices are also expected to have a role in understanding and supporting orchestra operations for NYO-USA and may be asked to assist the music library staff or management team with relevant administrative functions.

Candidates are not expected to have orchestral conducting experience, but should be able to demonstrate substantial instrumental experience and strong musicianship, as well as leadership potential. After reviewing audition submissions, James Ross and NYO-USA staff may conduct interviews via Skype prior to making a final selection.

Apprentice Composers

Two apprentice composers will be invited to spend three weeks with NYO-USA and its faculty and staff, and will be asked to bring one or more scores to Purchase College to be read/workshopped with musicians from the orchestra. One of the goals of the apprenticeship will be to give the composers experience with orchestration and writing for larger forces, and to create opportunities for dialogue between instrumentalists and composers who are peers.

Celebrated American composer Sean Shepherd, who wrote a new work (Magiya) for NYO-USA’s inaugural season in 2013, serves as a program director and mentor to the apprentices. Shepherd has held composition fellowships with The Cleveland Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, and Reno Philharmonic. Shepherd has had a number of notable premieres with Ensemble Intercontemporain (Paris), BBC Symphony Orchestra, National Symphony Orchestra, FLUX Quartet at the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, and St. Luke’s Chamber Ensemble.
