The Young New Yorkers membership program at the New York Philharmonic

The Young New Yorkers membership program is a special group of young professionals who enjoy and support the New York Philharmonic. Members play an important role in the life of the Orchestra by developing long-term relationships as donors and subscribers. They also have the opportunity to become future leaders of the Philharmonic. Young New Yorkers enjoy concerts together, learn about music through exclusive evenings with artists and musicologists, and share unique social activities.
