The National Youth Orchestra of the United States of America is a phenomenal new group made up of 120 of the brightest young instrumentalists in our country, and led by the dynamic conductor David Robertson. He'll lead them in a new work by American composer Samuel Carl Adams; Leonard Bernstein's "Symphonic Dances" from West Side Story; Ravel's orchestration of Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition; and they'll be joined by superstar Gil Shaham for Benjamin Britten's Violin Concerto.

In partnership with Carnegie Hall and WQXR, Carnegie Hall Live is a season of “must-have” classical music events, broadcast live from the nation’s most famous concert hall. The series includes concerts from all three of Carnegie Hall’s iconic stages: Weill Recital Hall, Zankel Hall and Stern Auditorium.
