New York Youth Symphony Announces 2016/17 First Music Commissions

Through its First Music program, the New York Youth Symphony (NYYS) has selected seven of America’s emerging orchestra, chamber music, and jazz composers under age 30 to write commissions for the NYYS’ 54th Season. The works will be premiered by NYYS student musicians on their performances at Carnegie Hall and Jazz at Lincoln Center. Called "invaluable" by The New York Times, First Music has been widely acknowledged as one of the leading forces in the United States for bringing the work of gifted young composers to the public’s attention for the past 33 years.
