National Youth Orchestra of the United States of America
Michael Tilson Thomas conducts the National Youth Orchestra of the United States of America, showcasing his mastery of a wide range of repertoire, dedication to mentoring young talent, and commitment to the music of living composers. Jean-Yves Thibaudet performs Gershwin's effervescent Piano Concerto—a touchstone work for both soloist and conductor—in a program that includes Sibelius's heroic Symphony No. 2, as well as the world premiere of a new work by Ted Hearne, commissioned by Carnegie Hall. Come hear the country's brightest young musicians, brought together by Carnegie Hall's Weill Music Institute, in one of the summer's most eagerly anticipated events.
