Philharmonic Free Fridays


Share the Music

In the 2014–15 season, the New York Philharmonic invites young people ages 13–26 to hear the Orchestra for free.

100 free tickets for young people will be available to every Friday evening subscription concert.

Free tickets may be reserved online and must be claimed in person from Will Call at the Avery Fisher Hall Box Office. Tickets will also be distributed the day of each Philharmonic Free Friday from 5:00–7:00 p.m. (for concerts starting at 8:00 p.m.) or 4:30–6:30 p.m. (for no-intermission concerts starting at 7:30 p.m.) at Window 1 at the Avery Fisher Hall Box Office. First-come, first-served; one per person. Tickets will be available for reservation five days before the concert date.

Additional tickets for people over 26 will be available for purchase, subject to availability.

We look forward to seeing you at a Philharmonic Free Friday soon!
