YOA Orchestra of the Americas
- District of Columbia
We are a world-class symphony orchestra of gifted young musicians, ages 18-30 representing 25 countries in the Western Hemisphere whose mission is to empower young musical leaders to transform lives across the Americas and beyond. Each summer, the Orchestra tours internationally at no expense to their musicians and provides world-class training with collaborators like Philip Glass and Yo-Yo Ma. The organization is unique in its commitment to community engagement and the international collaboration it fosters.
