Outstanding young American instrumentalists form NYO2, a free orchestra program that comes together alongside NYO-USA and NYO Jazz 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 and conservatories during a residency at Purchase College, SUNY, before NYO2’s performances.
In 2020, NYO2 returns to Miami Beach through a partnership with the New World Symphony. Performances at Carnegie Hall and the orchestra’s debut concert at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County will be led by conductor Mei-Ann Chen.
