BERGENFIELD, N.J. -- Bergenfield High School junior Parker Jones has been invited to be a member of NYO2 for the 2016 season by Carnegie Hall and its Weill Music Institute.

Parker will become part of the inaugural class of the new program, which has grown out of the success of the National Youth Orchestra.

As a member of NYO2, Parker will work with conductor Giancarlo Guerrero and players from the Philadelphia Orchestra, among other faculty, from June 18 to July 4.

Lessons, coaching, and orchestra rehearsals, as well as other educational and recreational activities, will take place at Purchase College, in Westchester County, N.Y.

The finale of the NYO2 experience will be a weekend in Philadelphia from July 1-4, highlighted by a side-by-side concert with the Philadelphia Orchestra on July 2 at Verizon Hall.
