Comprised of 120 gifted young musicians from the countries of the Western Hemisphere and under the artistic advisement of Plácido Domingo, the Youth Orchestra of the Americas led by Gustavo Dudamel performs in the Concert Hall. The YOA has performed with guest artists and conductors, including Yo-Yo Ma and Leonard Slatkin, taking their message of multicultural and hemispheric unity around the world.

For the third year of AmericArtes: The Kennedy Center Celebrates the Arts of Latin America, the festival will highlight the vibrant cultures of Mexico, as well as the culturally rich Andean region of South America, which includes the countries of Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Venezuela. Through a wide array of music, dance, and theater performances, as well as literature readings and film screenings, AmericArtes aims to portray the multiple images of the soul of the Mexican people, including those on both sides of our shared border, and the extraordinary artistic expression that traverses through the Andean countries, from the Caribbean coast to the Bolivian highlands.

AmericArtes includes main-stage performances but also Millennium Stage concerts, Performance Plus™ activities, Distance Learning satellite program for schools, a festival Web site, and more.
