2017 Chinese New Year Concert and Gala Slideshow

The New York Philharmonic welcomed the Year of the Rooster with the sixth annual Chinese New Year Concert and Gala, a festive musical evening presented by Starr International Foundation and conducted by Long Yu. The program blended East and West, concert hall and folk song. In the spotlight were soprano Sumi Jo and trumpet player Alison Balsom — both in their Philharmonic debuts — as well as virtuosos of the Orchestra, Concertmaster Frank Huang and Principal Flute Robert Langevin. Gala guests, many in traditional Chinese attire, began the evening with a colorful cocktail reception, and gathered after the concert for a dinner of delicacies.
