CH1993975_Original.jpg

Musicians in youth ensembles are eager to get back to in-person rehearsals and performances, and this Saturday (7/24 at 7 pm), A Tempo catches up with two of them. Carnegie Hall's National Youth Orchestra ensembles (NYO-USA, NYO-2 for slighhtly younger students and NYO-Jazz) are back this summer, with musicians gathering on the campus of SUNY-Purchase for workshops, sectionals and rehearsals, after the pandemic forced the cancellation of the 2020 season. A Tempo host Rachel Katz will chat with two of them - drummer Koleby Royston of Piscataway, NJ, who is participating in NYO-Jazz, and NYO-USA horn player Samantha Strickland of Bridgewater, NJ - about the summer program and the joy of returning to live music-making.
