Beginning in 1842, the New York Philharmonic’s historic collections are some of the longest running, most comprehensive Archives in the world of performing arts. An early tradition of documenting all activities began even before the first concert and continues today.
Created only for the web, these ever growing, multi-media online exhibitions join together material from the archives with contemporary events to tell a particular story or take you behind the scenes while the orchestra is on tour.
