NYO2

The Philadelphia Orchestra is proud to partner with Carnegie Hall on the NYO2 initiative. Launched by Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute, NYO2 is a two-week, intensive summer training program for outstanding young American instrumentalists ages 14–17 at SUNY-Purchase. NYO2 has 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.


NYO2 participants will have the opportunity to work closely with 18 members of The Philadelphia Orchestra while at Purchase College, and will travel to Philadelphia for a culminating residency from July 1-3, 2016.
