Viola students well represented in 2022 National Youth Orchestra of Canada

Congratulations to three current viola students who have earned their place in the 2022 National Youth Orchestra (NYO) Canada tour.

Violists Miriam Elsawi, Tasman Tantasawat, and Colman Yang – who are all members of Sharon Wei’s studio – will join this year’s “Borealis Tour” July 20 – August 3 after a 5-week summer training institute.

The mission of the National Youth Orchestra of Canada (NYO Canada) is to recruit the best young classical musicians from across the country and prepare them for careers as professional orchestral musicians. Each year, NYO Canada auditions more than 500 musicians ages 16-28.

Under the guidance of world-renowned faculty of professional musicians and educators, orchestra members participate in the NYO Canada Chamberfest and Orchestral Training Institute, including a recording session, and a concert tour.
