National Youth Orchestra to include PYP co-concertmaster

Congratulations are in order for Portland Youth Philharmonic's co-concertmaster Fumika Mizuno, who has been selected to join the National Youth Orchestra, which is part of Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute. The 109-member orchestra will receive a two-week training residency this coming June on the campus of SUNY Purchase. They will perform in Carnegie Hall under Christoph Eschenbach and then embark on a tour of Europe to play concerts led by Valery Gergiev.  For more information on the NYO-USA (including a listing of all orchestra members and their hometowns), click here.

PS: I just found out that this is the second time that Mizuno has been selected for the NYO-USA orchestra. She was one of the co-concertmasters last year in the "Symphonie Fantastique" concert under Charles Dutoit.
