Organizer

New York Festival Orchestra (NYFO)

The New York Festival Orchestra (NYFO) made a highly successful debut at Carnegie Hall/Stern Auditorium in December 2013 with a cast of exceptional young artists and veteran musicians.  

The New York Concert Review critic found that the Orchestra's performance of Beethoven's 9th Symphony was "...among the best of the live performances I have heard of this work, and justly deserving of the standing ovation it was accorded.   Bravo to all!" 

The New York Festival Orchestra is a project of the non-profit organization Forte 90, Inc. (http://www.Forte90inc.com).
