Remembering Jake

Posted July 19, 2013

Jake the Philharmonic Dog

The Philharmonic has lost a good friend, indeed. We’ve learned of the death of Jake, the Philharmonic Dog, at the age of 17. Jake spent his entire life backstage at Avery Fisher Hall, greeting musicians, celebrating his birthday onstage, checking out Fashion Week at Lincoln Center, and most of all, becoming the subject of a children’s book about the Orchestra.
