The two shows that are making their way to the main stage are scheduled to be held at the Isaac Stern Auditorium in New York and the Tanglewood Music Center in Lenox. Inaugurated in 2012, the National Youth Orchestra of United States of America, shortly known as NYO-USA was formed to provide young instrumentalists a platform to perform internationally. Since 1940 it is the very first youth orchestra that aims at inspiring and promoting upcoming young musicians to pursue their passion. Following the format of this youth orchestra that was established in 1940 i.e. the All-American Youth Orchestra, the NYO-USA also operates along the same lines as the renowned National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain. The idea for the formation of the NYO-USA was presented by the Weill Music Institute. The organization worked along with Sir Clive Gillinson, artistic and executive director of Carnegie Hall, to form the annual showcase.
Musicians who perform each summer are between the age of 16 and 19 and are taken in after an intense application and audition process. These musicians then receive a two week residency to train them in a professional manner so they can embark on an international tour.

The 120 musicians that became a part of the four city tour were chosen after auditions were held in 42 states across America. The residency into which the chosen applicants are usually enrolled is the Purchase College situated in State University in New York.
