Citi Private Bank is proud to bring you the last in the series of concert segments that showcase Carnegie Hall’s national youth ensembles. Each summer, the Hall’s Weill Music Institute brings together the brightest young musicians from across the country to form the National Youth Orchestra of the United States of America (NYO-USA), NYO2, and NYO Jazz. These remarkable teenagers undergo a comprehensive audition process to take part in a multi-week training residency with leading professional orchestra and jazz musicians. This week’s finale features NYO Jazz.
COLTRANE “Giant Steps” (arr. Frank Foster)
NYO Jazz’s performance of this big band arrangement of legendary tenor saxophonist John Coltrane’s “Giant Steps” is an exuberant combination of fiery solos and crisp ensemble playing.
Please enjoy the results of their work.
