Stokowski Creates the All-American Youth Orchestra in 1940

 

Peter Gutmann in an essay on Stokowski in 1999 wrote:

 

"...[in 1940] he [Stokowski] seized the opportunity to vent his frustration with RCA, his record company, which had refused to sponsor a Stokowski tour but then launched one with Toscanini, its other star conductor.  While his Philadelphia Orchestra remained under exclusive contract to RCA, Stokowski would face no such constraints with an entirely new ensemble.  And so he created one, arranged a contract with rival Columbia and then proceeded to cut with his new orchestra many of the works that RCA had wanted him to record...' 15.

 

Stokowski's contract with the Philadelphia Orchestra had also lapsed in 1940 16.  So, he announced the creation of a new All-american Youth Orchestra and conducted auditions during April, May, and early June 1940.  Stokowski auditioned perhaps 1000 young musicians from a much larger pre-screed group across the United States, selecting 90 players 16

 

1940 AAYO

the 1940 All-American Youth Orchestra in rehearsal

 

To these young players, Stokowski added a number of key 'ringers' - experienced Philadelphia Orchestra musicians - to form his All-American Youth Orchestra.

Schoenbach AAYO

Sol Schoenbach, Principal bassoon, Philadelphia Orchestra added to reinforce the 1940 All-American Youth Orchestra for its Latin American tour

 

The first rehearsal took place in Atlantic City, New Jersey on 8 July 1940 7 After two weeks of rehearsal in Atlantic City in June and July, on 26 July 1940 at midnight, the All-American Youth Orchestra set sail on the SS Uruguay for South America.  During August and September, 1940 they toured Brazil (Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo), Argentina (Buenos Aires), and Uruguay (Montevideo).

Stokowski Recordings with the 1940 All-American Youth Orchestra

 

Stokowski had been an exclusive Victor recording artist since his first recording in 1917.  When NBC decided to fund Toscanini's South American tour, but not to fund the 1940 tour which Stokowski was planning, he approached Columbia Records.  William Paley agreed to pay for Stokowski's 1940 South American tour in return for Stokowski's agreement to record for Columbia Records.  Stokowski had an exclusive contract with Victor for recordings with the Philadelphia Orchestra, but no such contract covered this new All-American Youth Orchestra.  So, Stokowski became a Columia Records recording artist.

 

Stokowski and the All-American Youth Orchestra recorded for Columbia Records even before embarking for their Latin American tour.  On 24 July 1940 in Columbia's Liederkranz Hall on 30th Street in New York City, Stokowski and the 1940 AAYO recorded two patriotic sides: The Star-Spangled Banner and Irving Berlin's God Bless America, both as arranged by Stokowski.  The "Pledge of Allegiance" spoken before the Star-Spangled Banner was spoken by legendary (later) producer Goddard Lieberson.

AAYO

Stokowski's Initial Concert 11 May 1941 of the 1941 trans-continental tour of the All-American Youth Orchestra

 

Stokowski's decided that in the Summer of 1941, he would re-create an All-American Youth Orchestra, this time touring North American.  Initially, he announced that the Orchestra would tour the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Cuba.  Musicians between the ages of 18 to 25 were invited to audition in states across the United States 3.  Less professional musicians (8 Philadelphia Orchestra musicians, compared with 16 in the 1940 orchestra 4) and of younger age 5.

back row: Lynne Wainwright harp, Helen Tannenbaum, Sylvia Ruderman (Glass) flute, Catherine Connolly cello, Helene Goldenberg violin, Mary Coleman

 

The 1941 tour began with a concert on 11 May 1941 in Atlantic City, New Jersey,  This was followed by concerts at Baltimore, Maryland, Carnegie Hall, New York City, Rutgers University, New Brunswick, New Jersey, the Boston Garden, Massachusetts, Providence, Rhode Island, Albany, New York, Buffalo, New York, Springfield, Massachusetts, Toronto, Canada, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Toledo, Ohio, Detroit, Michican, Chicago at the Civic Opera House, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Saint Paul, Minnesota, Omaha, Nebraska, Saint Louis, Missouri, Indianapolis, Indiana, Louisville, Kentucky, Nashville, Tennessee, Memphis, Tennessee, Kansas City, Missouri, Wichita, Kansas, Colorado Springs, Colorado, Denver, Colorado, Salt Lake City, Utah, Seattle, Washington, Portland, Oregon, Sacramento, California, San Francisco, California, and concluding at a giant concert in the Rose Bowl Stadium, Pasadena, California

 

The plans for Mexico and Cuba were cut.  Initially, the tour was to culminate with a concert in San Diego, California was to be followed by a final concert just over the boarder in Tijuana, Mexico.  However, these last two concerts were also eliminated, given the already grueling tour schedule 6.  The Rose Bowl Stadium concert was given from an orchestra shell constructed to Stokowski's specifications.

 

This 35 city 1941 tour of the All-American Youth Orchestra was financing out of Stokowski's own funds, although he subsequently earned royalties on the Columbia Records recordings.

AAYO 1941

Leopold Stokowski with 1941 All-American Youth Orchestra musicians Myer Bello viola and Jeanne Beyless cello

 

Following the conclusion of the 1941 tour, recording sessions with the All-American Youth Orchestra followed in Los Angeles 3 to 20 July 1941 by Columbia Records including two of the American contemporary pieces featured during the tour: Cowell's Tales of our Countryside, and the Scherzo from Paul Creston's Symphony no 1.  Unlike the 1940 recordings, which were issued with the orchestra's name "All-American Youth Orchestra", Columbia decided to issue the 1940 recordings under the name "All-American Orchestra", presumably with the idea that they might sell better with this altered name. 

 

A listing of these 1941 recordings is given below:

The All-American Youth Orchestra Recordings

 

Stokowski's 1940 performances with this orchestra were usually fresh and exciting and well-received by critics.  However, the 1941 recordings were less successful, perhaps due to fatigue.  Technically, the recordings from both years were not up to the standards of recordings in Philadelphia by the Victor engineers.  However, the records did introduce many listeners to the short-lived All-American Youth Orchestra made up of many musicians who would go on to orchestra careers.
