A competition is under way in Russia to select 60 musicians between the ages of 9 and 22 to form the first All-Russian Youth Orchestra. The orchestra will make its debut this November as part of the Cultural Olympiad for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. Violist Yuri Bashmet, an ambassador for Sochi 2014, will oversee all the qualifying rounds of the competition. The winning musicians will perform in gala concerts in Sochi and Moscow under Bashmet's direction.
