Young People, See the Philharmonic Free on Fridays

Posted July 10, 2014

Free Fridays NY Philharmonic 

Ah, to be young and free. On Fridays this coming season, that's exactly what will happen.

In the 2014–15 season, the New York Philharmonic invites those ages 13–26 to hear the Orchestra free of charge. One hundred free tickets will be given out for 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.

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

Here is a list of eligible concerts. We look forward to seeing you at a Philharmonic Free Friday soon!
