NYO-USA
Orchestra Application

Applications for the 2018 season of The National Youth Orchestra of the United States of America (NYO-USA) are now closed. NYO-USA will invite young musicians ages 16–19 to audition for its 2019 season in September 2018. All application materials must be submitted using an online form administered by Acceptd, a service that provides a digital audition platform to many performing arts schools. In order to start the NYO-USA application, you will need to create an Acceptd account. (If you already have one, you can start a new application using your existing account.) Once you create an Acceptd account, you will be able to start the NYO-USA application and save your progress at any point. If this is your first experience with an online digital audition service, we encourage you to allow enough time to upload and review the required application videos to make certain they represent your playing as effectively as possible.

Timeline

Instrumentation

NYO-USA will be accepting applications for the 2019 season on all standard orchestra instruments, including harp and keyboard.

Application Fee

There is a $30 application fee, payable online via major credit card at the time you fully complete and submit your application. To apply for a fee waiver on the basis of financial need, please email a completed fee-waiver application to nyo-usa@carnegiehall.org before you submit your application. Upon approval, we will provide you with a promo code to be entered during the payment step of your application on Acceptd. Fee waiver requests must be received no later than November 1, 2018.

Application Requirements

Audition Videos

All applicants to NYO-USA are required to record a series of audition videos that include the content outlined below. Each performance segment must be recorded in one take with no editing (though you may and should select the best of several takes). All videos must be recorded within eight months of the application deadline. Professional equipment and/or studio space is not necessary for a successful application to NYO-USA. With attention to a few details, your music making can be conveyed using readily available consumer electronics. Many past participants have recorded successful applications using iPhones or other smartphones. Please refer to our Video Guidelines for additional information and suggestions for effectively recording your audition.

Required Video Segments

Eligibility

Citizenship: NYO-USA is open to US citizens or permanent residents (green card holders) from all backgrounds.

Age Limit: You must be between the ages of 16 and 19 during the summer of your participation. For 2019, this means your birthdate must be between July 1, 1999, and June 30, 2003, without exception. Please note that if you are under 18 at the time that you apply, the consent of your parent or guardian is required.

Music Study: If you are enrolled full-time in a college-level conservatory or music department with instrumental performance as your major (or intended field of study), you are not eligible to join NYO-USA.
