NYO Canada and Team Molto Presto invite you to walk or run with us this fall during the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon! Our goal is to raise $16,000 which will cover 16 individual student stipends for the 2016 orchestra.
For more than fifty years, NYO Canada has enjoyed an iconic reputation as Canada's orchestral finishing school, providing the most comprehensive and in-depth training program available to our country's best young classical musicians. Each year, NYO Canada auditions about five hundred students between the ages of 16 and 28.From those auditions, we select 90-100 of Canada's most promising young orchestral musicians to participate in our summer training institute, where they will benefit from rigorous individual, sectional, chamber and orchestral instruction; training in health and injury prevention; and workshops ranging from audition techniques to the skills required to market one's musical career. The institute culminates in a cross-country tour with performances in Canada's most prestigious concert halls, as well as a session in a state of-the-art recording studio at McGill University's Schulich School of Music, with the audio available for sale to NYO Canada fans and classical music lovers worldwide. The success of training with NYO Canada is evident across the Canadian orchestral landscape; approximately one third of Canadian professional orchestral musicians are alumni of NYO Canada!
NYO Canada is proud to host Canada's only summer institute that offers a comprehensive training program, concert tour, and recording session to participants with no tuition required. Each student chosen from auditions is supported by funding provided by NYO Canada's generous donors.
