National Youth Orchestra of the USA | Sir Andrew Davis, conductor | Hilary Hahn, violin
Valerie Coleman: Giants of Light (commissioned by Carnegie Hall)
Tchaikovsky: Violin Concerto
Berlioz: Symphonie fantastique
For the past ten years, Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute has assembled the finest young musicians ages 16–19 from across the country to form the National Youth Orchestra of the United States of America. Following a competitive audition process and training in New York with musicians from top professional US orchestras, these remarkable teenagers perform at Carnegie Hall and then serve as musical ambassadors, performing in the great music capitals of the world. We’re proud that two of our Nashville Symphony Accelerando students, trombonist Orlandis Maise and French hornist Derek “Miles” Woods – both graduating seniors at Martin Luther King Jr. Magnet High School – will go on the road with the orchestra this summer for the NYO’s 10th anniversary tour, and we’ll get to root them on at the Schermerhorn for this one-night-only concert. Violinist Hilary Hahn joins the orchestra as soloist performing the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto in a program that also includes a new Carnegie Hall commission from composer Valerie Coleman and Berlioz's Symphonie fantastique.
