The National Youth Orchestra of the United States of America makes its Walt Disney Concert Hall debut. Each summer, Carnegie Hall's Weill Music Institute brings together 120 of the brightest young players from across the country to take part in a two-week training residency with leading orchestra musicians. Then these remarkable teenagers embark on a tour to some of the great music capitals of the world. For this tour, David Robertson conducts an electrifying program that begins with Bernstein's Symphonic Dances from West Side Story, a great American classic that pulses with fiery rhythms. The orchestra is joined by Gil Shaham for Britten's intense and virtuosic Violin Concerto. Samuel Carl Adams' innovative style is on vivid display in a special new work commissioned by Carnegie Hall. The program wraps up with perennial favorite Pictures at an Exhibition by Mussorgsky. Learn More

Founded by Eduard Schmieder in 1991, the iPalpiti (ee-PAHL-pit-ee is Italian for heartbeat) Orchestra became a flagship ensemble of iPalpiti Artists International in 1999. iPalpiti’s humanitarian mission of cultural exchange succeeded in creating a truly universal network among over 200 artists from all over the world, promoting international and cultural understanding through music. During the summer of each year, iPalpiti brings twenty-five to thirty of these exceptionally gifted professional musicians to its home-base in Los Angeles, California for the prestigious iPalpiti Festival of International Laureates where members perform in solo, ensemble, and orchestral public concerts.
iPalpiti artists, often referred to as “Musical Peace Corps,” hold claim to over 100 international competition awards. iPalpiti is internationally recognized for their breathtaking performances in Japan, Israel, Holland, Switzerland, Belgium and Italy, to name a few. “Classical music is the spiritual factor which brings people together and unites them irrespective of religion and culture, appealing to sublime senses,” states Eduard Schmieder.
