Gabrielle Jacob of Prince George has been accepted into the 2015 National Youth Orchestra Canada.
The announcement was made in an NYO media release. A highly competitive audition process is used to make the selection from among the nearly 500 applicants. Those chosen become part of the 100-strong professional training orchestra for emerging artists.
Founded in 1960, the Orchestra was the creation of Maestro Walter Susskind and, according to the release, has since evolved into Canada’s foremost orchestral finishing school, providing the most comprehensive and in-depth training program available to our country’s best young classical musicians.
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. With approximately one third of Canadian professional orchestral musicians listed as alumni, the NYO has been the most influential step in the career of hundreds of young musicians.
