  1. On Tuesday, February 20, the New York Philharmonic held its annual Lunar New Year Concert and Gala at David Geffen Hall, welcoming the Year of the Dragon in style. Distinguished guests and friends of the Orchestra came out for the festive evening, which honored philanthropist, business entrepreneur, and NY Phil Board Member Misook Doolittle in a celebration of cultural heritage, new beginnings, and music’s capacity to transcend borders.

    The successful Gala — which garnered $1.2 million for the Philharmonic, the most raised by any Lunar New Year Gala thus far — centered on the concert. Long Yu conducted the Orchestra and charismatic soloists in Western and Asian orchestral music, including beloved works by Bruch and Saint-Saëns and premieres by Elliot Leung and Zhou Tian. Following the concert, the guests and artists dined together on the Leon and Norma Hess Grand Promenade, capping off a joyous evening for all. Next week Long Yu returns to lead the US Premiere of Émigré, a work co-commissioned by Yu, the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra, and the NY Phil.

  2. The New York Philharmonic announced today that Gustavo Dudamel — our future Oscar L. Tang and H.M. Agnes Hsu-Tang Music and Artistic Director — will join the Orchestra in April for a weeklong celebration of music education, part of our season-long celebration of the centennial of the beloved Young People’s Concerts.

    As the centerpiece of the week, Dudamel will lead the Orchestra in our annual Spring Gala concert, on April 24, which also features an eclectic group of soloists: artist, actor, author, and activist Common; soprano Hera Hyesang Park; and — a most familiar face to New Yorkers — guitarist and former Yankees centerfielder Bernie Williams. The NY Phil will also perform several works side-by-side with student musicians from communities across New York City.

  3. On Wednesday, September 27, the New York Philharmonic held its Opening Gala, kicking off a 2023–24 season that is sure to be nothing short of thrilling. David Geffen Hall was decked out for the festive occasion, with a palpable feeling of celebration in the air. The concert, which included masterpieces by Beethoven and Tchaikovsky, marked the beginning of Music Director Jaap van Zweden’s farewell season at the NY Phil, and also marked a reunion with Yo-Yo Ma, the acclaimed soloist in Dvořák’s Cello Concerto.

    That concert was the centerpiece of the Gala evening, which honored Deborah Borda, the Orchestra’s former President and CEO. Over two stints as the NY Phil’s chief executive — totaling 14 years — Borda revitalized the Orchestra, worked with NY Phil and Lincoln Center leadership to transform David Geffen Hall, and deepened connections with New York City communities. This past June, just before she moved into the role of Executive Advisor to the President and Board of Directors, the NY Phil Board named her an Honorary Member of the Philharmonic-Symphony Society of New York for her “outstanding service to the organization and the world of music.”

    All told, it was a splendid evening for the New York Philharmonic — an occasion to honor its past, revel in its present, and look ahead to its boundless future. Check out some highlights in the slideshow above!
