Posted:

CHARLESTON, WV (AP) -- The National Youth Orchestra has accepted its first West Virginian.

The Charleston Daily Mail (http://bit.ly/1wlCag7 ) reports that 18-year-old Pete Nichols is a Capital High School percussionist. He will perform with about 100 other teenage talents at Carnegie Hall before leaving on a seven-city tour of China this summer. He'll also study with some of the country's top musicians.

The National Youth Orchestra was established in 2012. More than 1,000 teenagers auditioned for this year's orchestra and 110 were accepted.
