What's New

  1. The New York Philharmonic capped off its monthlong HOME festival in style at the end of October, inaugurating the completely transformed David Geffen Hall with activities presented in collaboration with Lincoln Center: two Opening Galas, plus Open House Weekend, which offered wide-ranging activities so the public could discover New York’s new home for music.

    The first Gala, The Journey, brought together stars of stage and screen to perform alongside the Orchestra to celebrate David Geffen Hall’s decades-long journey to completion. The soloists included Lin-Manuel Miranda, Sara Bareilles, Brandon Victor Dixon, Renée Fleming, Joaquina Kalukango, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Bernadette Peters, and Vanessa Williams.

    The second, The Joy, spoke to the spirit of unity and hope, with Music Director Jaap van Zweden conducting the World Premiere of Angélica Negrón’s You Are the Prelude, commissioned by the Philharmonic for the occasion, and Beethoven’s monumental Ninth Symphony, with the New York Philharmonic Chorus uplifting the audience with the iconic “Ode to Joy” finale.

    Open House Weekend invited audiences of all ages to explore everything the new hall has to offer with a variety of family-friendly activities — completely free. All told, some 15,000 people dropped by over the course of the weekend.

    Check out some of the highlights above, and be sure to stop by David Geffen Hall to see it all for yourself as our 2022–23 season continues!

  2. The New York Philharmonic’s nomadic 2021–22 season concluded with the return to the Bravo! Vail Music Festival, which included the announcement of the residency’s extension through 2027. With repertoire ranging from works by Mozart and Mahler to a World Premiere by Carlos Simon, and soloists including Conrad Tao, Bomsori Kim, and Seong-Jin Cho, Music Director Jaap van Zweden and the NY Phil treated concertgoers to an eclectic, spirited series of performances amid breathtaking Rocky Mountain vistas. The residency concluded with back-to-back concerts led by Leonard Slatkin, one marking the NY Phil debut of Zlatomir Fung, first-prize winner of the Tchaikovsky Competition, and the other a salute to Sondheim featuring Isabel Leonard and Emmett O'Hanlon. It’s an altogether fitting ending to an unpredictable, but ultimately triumphant, season for the Orchestra, as it now looks ahead to its return home to the new David Geffen Hall this October.

  3. Of all the New York Philharmonic activities that were put on hold over the past two years as a result of the pandemic, perhaps none was more sorely missed than the Concerts in the Parks, Presented by Didi and Oscar Schafer. After two years of silence the stars aligned — and the weather cooperated — allowing the beloved tradition to return.

    Over four consecutive nights, June 14–17, the Orchestra performed for a collective audience of 100,000 who gathered in Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx, Central Park’s Great Lawn in Manhattan, Cunningham Park in Queens, and Prospect Park in Brooklyn. Music Director Jaap van Zweden conducted works by Wagner, Bruch, and Dvořák, as well as two original works by NY Phil Very Young Composers, and violinist Bomsori Kim was the soloist. On Sunday — which marked both Father’s Day and Juneteenth — the Free Indoor Concert, Presented by Didi and Oscar Schafer, returned to the St. George Theatre, where NY Phil Musicians joined special guests in the day of double celebration.
