For 100 years New York Philharmonic Young People’s Concerts have captured imaginations and delighted young audiences. Help us celebrate this exciting milestone with a deep dive into Musorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition. Art, stories, movement, music, and fresh perspectives of today’s students converge in an enchanting concert that elevates the importance of fantasy and imagination. Together, we’ll create a boundless new world inspired by the kaleidoscopic sounds of the Orchestra!
