  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. 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!

  3. This past weekend, the New York Philharmonic concluded its 2023 residency at The McKnight Center for the Performing Arts at Oklahoma State University (OSU). The third year of a three-year partnership among the NY Phil, the McKnight Center, and OSU comprised three orchestral concerts, a chamber-music concert for young people, and educational activities, including masterclasses for OSU students led by 15 NY Phil musicians.

    Music Director Jaap van Zweden conducted masterpieces by Copland, Beethoven, Dvořák, and more, and was joined by soloists including violinist Stefan Jackiw and pianist Anne-Marie McDermott. On the residency’s second concert, van Zweden shared the podium with guest conductor Jeff Tyzik, who led the Philharmonic in a selection of film scores, including NY Phil Principal Trumpet Christopher Martin’s reprisal of music from a John Williams soundtrack he premiered.
