• NYO-USA Trading Cards: Collect Them All on Facebook

    On June 30, 120 of the country’s brightest young players will come together for the first time as the National Youth Orchestra of the United States of America. Follow the orchestra’s new Facebook Page today to get a behind-the-scenes look at the NYO-USA experience.

    Hailing from 42 US states—from Eagle River, Alaska, to Miami, Florida; from Seattle, Washington, to Sioux Falls, South Dakota; from Honolulu, Hawaii, to Kalamazoo, Michigan; and from Los Angeles, California, to Marietta, Georgia and beyond—these young musicians, ages 16–19, have been recognized by Carnegie Hall as being among the finest in the country following a comprehensive audition process.

    We’ve been rolling out trading cards for the inaugural members of NYO-USA on Facebook over the last few months. Collect them all today!
