NYC is Calling OYO

Tentatively re-scheduled for June 5-9, 2021
PENDING SAFETY OF TRAVEL

When Carnegie Hall announced its closure to continue in late spring 2020, our OYO to NYC Tour planned in June 2020 was postponed. Tour Participants were notified in May with the options to roll forward or request a refund. All 2020 Planned Tour Participants are eligible for the 2021 Tour – even those who requested a refund may re-join as late as January 2021.

For the first time in our 42-year history, we have been invited to perform at Carnegie Hall, as a part of the Sounds of Summer Festival! In early June 2021, Mr. Grogan’s OYO hopes to travel to New York City for five days filled with rehearsals, performances, clinics, and much more! Check out this great coverage of this exciting opportunity by our friends at KFOR:

OYO to NYC Funding Tracker

Thanks to the fundraising work of our board of directors, the $2,500 per person price tag* has been reduced to $2,375 per person. We are currently working through the credit and refund process for the 100+ students and family members who had committed to the 2020 Tour – please watch your emails and thank you for your patience!

*Please note that these costs were set for the initial 2020 Tour and subject to change, although we don’t expect them to change very much.
