Carnegie Hall announced the teen musicians selected for the 2023 National Youth Orchestra of the United States of America, and violinist Joylyn Kim of Lexington has been chosen.
The members of the 2023 orchestra — ages 16–19, hailing from 31 U.S. states plus Puerto Rico — have been recognized by Carnegie Hall as being among the finest players in the country following a comprehensive and highly selective audition process.
This summer, NYO-USA musicians will travel to New York in early July for an intensive two-week training residency at Purchase College, State University of New York (SUNY). Acclaimed conductor Sir Andrew Davis leads NYO-USA at the orchestra’s annual Carnegie Hall concert (July 14), and throughout its North American tour, which includes a stop in Groton, Mass. on July 13.
NYO-USA’s tour repertoire includes a new work written for the ensemble by Valerie Coleman, commissioned by Carnegie Hall; Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique; and Barber’s and Tchaikovsky’s violin concertos.
