Laureate Conductor Leonard Bernstein’s profound presence can be felt — and heard — throughout the 2017–18 season, with complete performances of his symphonic works during Bernstein’s Philharmonic: A Centennial Festival, another season of the beloved Young People’s Concerts series, as well as through tailored lectures and presentations celebrating his legacy.

In what would have been his 100th birthday year, we continue Lenny’s traditions through masterful programming, artistic excellence, and innovative music education programs. Consider a gift to the Leonard Bernstein Fund to help support Leonard Bernstein’s legacy at the New York Philharmonic.
