Starting Saturday, UNIQLO will dress the Orchestra for Young People's Concerts (YPCs). Strings will be dressed in red or pink; brass in blue; woodwinds in green; percussion in orange; and the harp and keyboard in light blue. Children are invited to come dressed in the color of their favorite section!
In addition, UNIQLO and the New York Philharmonic are conducting a clothing drive for New York City homeless shelters during this season's YPCs in Avery Fisher Hall. Please bring gently used clothing and place them in the bins located on the Grand Promenade. UNIQLO and the Philharmonic have also donated 50 tickets for Saturday's YPC to the New York City Department of Homeless Services.
