The extraordinary young musicians of Carnegie Hall’s national youth ensembles—the National Youth Orchestra of the United States of America (NYO-USA), NYO2, and NYO Jazz—represent the future of the country’s orchestral and jazz traditions. After being unable to gather in the summer of 2020, these three ensembles convene this July at Purchase College outside New York City. Their three weeks of training and music making culminate in this streamed event. Tune in for a celebration of community and music’s bright future as you get to know the remarkable performers that make up these ensembles.
