7 locals chosen for National Youth Orchestra

Seven aspiring musicians from the Puget Sound region have been chosen to join the 2014 National Youth Orchestra of the United States of America, Carnegie Hall administrators have announced. All 120 members of the NYO-USA are ages 16-19 and come from 33 states, Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico. More than 20 are returning from last year’s NYO (its inaugural year).

The seven are:

Violin: Alena Hove, Issaquah; Bronwyn James, Seattle; Sophia Stoyanovich, Bainbridge Island (returning)

Cello: Audrey Chen, Redmond (returning); Hana Cohon, Seattle

Horn: Andrew Angelos, Seattle

Apprentice Orchestra librarian: Trey Sakazaki, Bellevue

The orchestra members will travel to New York in early July to begin a two-week training at Purchase College, SUNY, working with principal players from U.S. orchestras. The orchestra will be led by conductor David Robertson, music director of the St. Louis Symphony, and joined by virtuoso violinist Gil Shaham. After the residency, NYO-USA will perform in an eight-city tour, which includes a stop at Carnegie Hall and a premiere of a work by American composer Samuel Carl Adams.
