Outstanding young American instrumentalists form NYO2, a free orchestra program that comes together alongside NYO-USA each summer for intensive training and performance opportunities. NYO2 has a particular focus on recruiting musicians from communities underrepresented in classical music. Participating musicians have the opportunity to work closely with top players from American orchestras during a residency before NYO2’s performances. After two weeks of training, the 2018 program culminates in a six-day residency at the New World Center in Miami. NYO2 then performs with members of the New World Symphony and violinist Gil Shaham in Miami and at Carnegie Hall under the direction of conductor Carlos Miguel Prieto.
