Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute brings together outstanding young American instrumentalists ages 14–17 to form NYO2, a free summer orchestral training program with a particular focus on attracting talented students from groups underserved by and underrepresented in the classical orchestral field. NYO2 aims to expand the pool of young musicians across the country equipped with the tools to succeed at the highest level, particularly those who will bring greater diversity to classical orchestral music and/or those who have not had access to highly selective training opportunities through major youth orchestra programs, summer festivals and camps, or similar experiences outside of their local community.
For 2018, NYO2 musicians will work closely with New World Symphony Fellows and alumni as well as other professional players from top US orchestras over two weeks of intensive training at Purchase College, State University of New York, leading up to a six-day residency in Miami Beach, including a performance at the New World Center led by conductor Carlos Miguel Prieto with violinist Gil Shaham. The NYO2 musicians will then return to New York for a culminating performance at Carnegie Hall in July 2018. NYO2 will be joined onstage by Fellows and alumni of the New World Symphony for both concerts.
Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute invites outstanding young American instrumentalists ages 14–17 to audition for NYO2’s 2018 season.
Deadline: December 15, 2017
