America’s youth orchestra is off to … Mexicomain
The National Youth Orchestra of the United States of America, 115 young musicians, leaves today for a tour of three Latin American countries – Colombia, Ecuador and Mexico – working with young musicians in all three nations. Marin Alsop conducts.
The NYO’s founder, Carnegie Hall chief Clive Gillinson says the orchestra will ‘serve as great musical ambassadors for their country.’
That’s the country whose president was elected on a promise to build a wall and make Mexico pay.
