A Tempo: Carnegie Hall Adds Jazz to NYO

Todd Rosenberg Photography

Carnegie Hall's National Youth Orchestra program launched its first-ever jazz program this summer, and this Saturday (8/4 at 7 pm) A Tempo takes a look at this new opportunity for young musicians. Host Rachel Katz will chat with pianist Brooke Wyatt from Houston, TX, and Wyatt Forham, a bass trombonist from St. Louis, MO. She will also speak with Joanna Massey, Director of Learning and Engagment Programs at Carnegie Hall's Weill Music Institute.

NYO-USA launched in 2013, and Carnegie Hall added its NYO2 program in 2016 to attract younger musicians, particularly those from communities that have been under-represented in classical music or have had less access to high-level performing opportunities. NYO-Jazz is being led by trumpeter and band leader Sean Jones.
