Attendees will be taken on a journey across the Cemetery, hearing the stories of Green-Wood’s extraordinary permanent residents—many of whom are members of the New York Philharmonic community—interwoven with music, dance, and poetry. From Leonard Bernstein’s gravesite to the Hill of Graves, the Civil War Soldiers Monument to the Catacombs, we’ll remember the battles lost and won, the challenges overcome, and the boundless ingenuity, open-hearted creativity, and indomitable strength of our beloved city.
Hymn to the City will run from June 3 through June 5, 2021 located at The Green-Wood Cemetery, 500 25th Street, Brooklyn ~ Purchase tickets.
Save the Dates! The New York Philharmonic’s NYPhilBandwagon2 will be popping up in Marcus Garvey Park, East Harlem from May 14-16. Three days of concerts in the park along Madison Avenue from 123rd to 124th Streets. This event is part of a series of four weekend-long festivals across New York City in May.
The New York Philharmonic’s Bandwagon rolled into neighborhoods in all five boroughs, and was a big hit! Before ending the season, they asked New Yorkers what they wanted to see next. We don’t know what the consensus was, but we do know that New Yorkers wanted more ~ and more we will get.
In celebration of the Centennial of the 19th Amendment, The New York Philharmonic has launched Project 19 ~ born of the conviction that an orchestra can participate in conversations about social imperatives and even change the status quo. Through Project 19, the Philharmonic can mark a “tectonic shift in American culture,” says President and CEO Deborah Borda, by giving women composers a platform and catalyzing representation in classical music and beyond. Project 19 launches in February 2020 with the first six World Premieres. The Orchestra will premiere the next two commissions in May–June 2020. 11 more premieres will follow in future seasons.
