Thanks to Philharmonic Friends and Patrons, violinist Yulia Ziskel now officially occupies The Friends and Patrons Chair. You will see the addition in Playbill and any other official listing.
The three-year campaign to raise $250,000 to endow the chair was completed in only 14 months.
"I am absolutely thrilled to learn that the Friends and Patrons of the New York Philharmonic have met the challenge and raised $250,000 to name my chair in the Orchestra The Friends and Patrons Chair," Ziskel said. "It is a great honor and I am delighted that in naming my chair we have raised a substantial sum to help the Orchestra."
