Carnegie Hall’s NYO2 makes its anticipated return to New World Center alongside Grammy Award-winning pianist Gabriela Montero and NWS Fellows and alumni for an exclusive one-night-only event—the orchestra’s only public performance before its finale at Carnegie Hall on July 30.
Under the baton of conductor Carlos Miguel Prieto, the ensemble zips from Spanish music to Russian ballet music, performing selections from Falla’s The Three-Cornered Hat and Stravinsky’s Pétrouchka. Pianist Gabriela Montero joins the ensemble as special guest to perform her own Piano Concerto No. 1, “Latin.”
NYO2’s 2018 season and six-day residency in Miami marked the start of a new partnership between New World Symphony and Carnegie Hall, which has current and former NWS Fellows mentoring and performing side-by-side with participating NYO2 students from across the country, including many from South Florida.
Comprising a “remarkable array of talent” (The New York Times), NYO2 is an orchestral training program for talented young players ages 14–17 with a focus on recruiting musicians from communities underrepresented in classical music.
NYO2 is a program of Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute.
