2018–19: Music Across Borders

Ages 6–12 | Saturdays at 2pm

Inspire young music lovers with four interactive Young People’s Concerts that show how music travels across borders. Music has the power to transport us across time and space, across the boundaries of fantasy and reality. And it can express our experience crossing into new lands. Share a season of great, thought-provoking music with a special young person of your own, here at the New York Philharmonic.
