The 92Y School of Music Orchestra has gone through many transformations over its history that spans nearly a century; one underlining vision has remained the same: to provide opportunities to talented amateurs who have entered other professions to continue developing their musical talents and to offer aspiring young artists an opportunity to hone their skills on their road to professional careers.
The School of Music orchestra has had illustrious soloists such as Gil Shaham and David Krakauer when they were up-and-coming young artists and a distinguished roster of Music Directors from Yaacov Bergman to Sean Kubota which attests to the great quality of musicianship created every week at 92Y. The current Music Director, Tomo Matsuo, is a Juilliard and Yale trained artist with great experience as a pianist and conductor. The orchestra is once again free to all members. We are excited to see what the 99th season brings, and hope you will be joining us — in the audience, if not on the stage.
Director, 92Y School of Music
