Concert Performance

NYO's San Diego Premier Symphony to make historical premier performances of the magnificent Franz Schmidt Symphony No. 1 at Winter Concert 2016.
.
 NYO's San Diego Premier Symphony to make historical premier performances of the magnificent Franz Schmidt Symphony No. 1 at Winter Concert 2016.
Don't miss NYO’s San Diego Premier Symphony making this region’s
first known historical performance of Franz Schmidt Symphony No. 1.

Austrian composer Franz Schmidt (1874-1939) is under performed in the United States as well as in Europe.  All though it is evident that he has produced some of the worlds greatest orchestral and choir works, matching the beauty and level of history's greatest composers.

This work has rarely been performed in concert in the U.S. and there was only one known recording of this work that was perform by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra in the late 1980's.

After some research, we at NYO New Youth Orchestra organization have concluded that this is the first time this work has ever been performed in San Diego County by any orchestra including the San Diego Symphony.  This technically difficult and musically challenging work would only be played by a very advanced level ensemble. Further more, just to order the music it took four months to receive.  It is held in Europe and can only be rented with a licensed agreement to use it in a planned concert. This was done through the proper channels in the United States.

This may be the last opportunity to hear this work live, and fortunately it will be skillfully performed by San Diego's most talented youth ensemble, NYO's San Diego Premier Symphony.

We're grateful to receive sponsorship from the university which includes living accommodations, food and transportation throughout this event. This offer will include the whole roster of NYO artistic staff and also NYO's advanced student members from NYO San Diego Premier Symphony who will be joining us the second half of this event.  As we build the NYO Festival in Mexico from last summer to this coming summer, we're intending that this will lead up to a full tour which will include every member of the NYO San Diego Premier Symphony as they join us next Summer for the NYO 2016 Mexico Tour.  We intend that this Summer tour/festival opportunity will become a permanent yearly program for all advanced NYO members.

NYO New Youth Orchestra and its new official outreach program partner Escuela de Musica, are working together to revive music in the San Diego public county schools in a big way. Together we’re happy to announce that there are now over 3000 students educated using the Escuela de Musica curriculum to date and over 40 music teachers participating in the program. This grass roots effort that was born here in San Diego is a major driving force in placing high quality music education back into the schools of our city and county. We here at NYO are elated that predictions of Escuela de Musica’s growth within the next five years may exceed 10000 students just in San Diego schools. Continuing to be the largest and most successful San Diego based outreach music program and curriculum of its type in this city’s history.

NYO New Youth Orchestra - San Diego Youth Orchestra (San Diego) "Youth Orchestra Training At Its Best"
  NYO members who are serious about their pursuit of music excellence, are very satisfied with NYO's
commitment to provide them with the finest performing and learning experience.

Marc Emmelmann from Find San Diego Quality.com "NYO is San Diego’s finest San Diego youth orchestra organization".


NYO New Youth Orchestra is rated 4 and 5 stars by its highest level performing members

.
Rated 5 Stars - Excellent by Marya Rana:  The New Youth Orchestra is an opportunity that every musician should fully embrace. The positive environment, passionate coaches, and overall intimacy of the program make it an unforgettable and rewarding experience that not only polishes the musician, but also nurtures the individual.
.
Rated 5 Stars - Excellent by Davin Lee:  At the New Youth Orchestra the directors constantly find great opportunities for the students. The students are encouraged to get involved in multiple aspects of music, such as chamber ensembles and solo competitions, in addition to the larger ensembles, to further their growth as both musicians and people. The accomplished instructors coach with detail and care, allowing the students to learn and express the beauty of their instruments, in a way unique to NYO.
.
Rated 5 Stars - Excellent by Zack Edwards: 
NYO has given me great opportunities to grow as a musician. The small ensembles have required me to learn my part and play my very best since every person's role is essential. My tone, intonation, and rhythmic accuracy have improved as a result of these rigorous practices. Also, NYO pushes students with challenging repertoire that they have never been exposed to or have even heard of. I fell in love with some of the pieces which I practiced and performed, learning about new composers and styles of music. Lastly, the overall atmosphere is innocuous and supportive while still maintaining friendly competition.
.
Rated 4 Stars - Very Good by Austin Nguyen:
  Even though I am relatively new to the program, NYO is an experience unlike any other. NYO provides a positive environment that it is not only beneficial to my playing but also to my overall character. The dedication and passion the directors have for music are evident in their teaching and offers a brand new perspective to me as a musician.

At NYO, our members will....



be heard at NYO San Diego youth orchestra

Here at NYO, we don’t "Supersize" our groups and we don’t stuff our members in ensemble rehearsals like sardines.
 

But we do believe, the smaller sized groups throughout our program allow every instrument to be heard during practice time, therefore making it possible for our conductors and coaches to better assist each performer. 
be heard at NYO San Diego youth orchestra

The New Youth Orchestra Organization definitely knows that the "Sink or Swim" method does not work.

Students who perform at various levels who participate in our orchestra or band programs, receive the support of quality musicians who are professional teachers, to provide regular performance examples and also to offer ongoing technical instruction to our young performers. 


be challenged at NYO San Diego youth orchestra

Each semester NYO members will learn different music, we don't repeat the same old repertoire every year. 

We want to keep everything fresh and interesting for students who may be learning in the same ensemble from one year to another. Additionally, as the groups continue to become more proficient at the music they are given throughout the semester, the NYO conductors will continually adjust the upcoming repertoire to match the level of each group.


be inspired at NYO San Diego youth orchestra

Playing concerts in fancy and expensive venues may provide one day of satisfaction to a young performer and his/her family.
 

But this is not a replacement for receiving weekly rehearsals that include a world class music education that's based on a solid training program and guided by the finest instructors. NYO is providing our members with a wide range of knowledge and abilities that will be beneficial for a lifetime.

A 90 year Ramirez family tradition


Music performance and teaching has been a 90 year Ramirez family tradition that has been successfully handed down for three generations. The NYO organization was proudly created by Ramirez family members that include Mario Ramirez  Executive Director, John Ramirez  Artistic Director and Miguel RamirezSince the conception of this organization, these three dedicated brothers along with others have been actively shaping the vision of NYO


Join the experience

NYO New Youth Orchestra is now creating exciting new ensembles where young musicians can meet new friends and collaborate with like minded performers. It's also our goal to introduce orchestra members to a wide range of new contemporary music as well as the great standard repertoire. Our approach keeps fresh and interesting concert programs. NYO is about new ensembles, new friends and new exciting music. What can be better?



We're planning for the future

The New Youth Orchestra - San Diego Youth orchestra is rapidly becoming the premier musical ensemble experience for San Diego's young instrumentalists.

For years to come, the whole community will enjoy concerts and other exciting events sponsored by our Innovative NYO San Diego Youth Orchestra.


We all look forward to programs that contain interesting and diverse symphonic music written by major composers from all periods. These compositions will include, but will not be restricted to mainly Mozart symphony No. 40. Beethoven Symphony No. 5 etc.. We don't want to limit our young members to mainly Mozart, Beethoven or even Brahms who are composers that wrote compositions which are instantly recognized to the general public today, but we want our youth orchestra performers to experience great works like Elgar Symphony No. 2, Mahler Symphony No. 5, Martinu Symphony No. 6, Bruckner Symphony No. 3, Symphony No. 1 von Weber, Tubin Symphony No. 3, Sinfonia Walker No. 1, Schnittke Symphony No. 8 and Philip Glass Symphony No. 7.



Location

NYO San Diego Youth Orchestra is grateful to be serving families who live in "Greater San Diego" but also those who live in coastal North County San Diego like La Jolla, Carlsbad, Oceanside, Encinitas, Solana Beach, Rancho Santa Fe, but also including Northern County inland communities like Mira Mesa Vista, San Marcos, Escondido, Rancho Bernardo, Poway, Rancho Penasquitos, Carmel Valley, 4SRanch.
