On the Cover: Pascual Martínez Forteza

Posted September 18, 2015

How do you get to be in the New York Philharmonic? Be extraordinary.

Philharmonic musicians are models of extraordinary virtuosity and determination, on top of being extraordinarily cool people! That’s why we’re launching On the Covera new series highlighting Philharmonic musicians.

Over the past few years, you've seen that a different Philharmonic musician graces the cover of Playbill each month. On the Cover gives each cover musician an opportunity to engage with you in new and exciting ways on social media and nyphil.org. 

We love sharing concert photos, intriguing stories, and behind-the-stage action with our social-media followers, and now we are excited to share engaging content designed by and/or featuring our cover musicians. Follow us on FacebookInstagramTwitter, Tumblr, and YouTube to get the full On the Cover experience!

Our first On the Cover musician, on the September Playbill, is clarinetist Pascual Martínez Forteza. Later this month, we'll share his curated Spotify playlist [see below] of what he's listening to, plus a video in which he plays some of his favorite parts of Beethoven's Seventh. Pascual will also take over our Instagram account to show you life as an Orchestra musician through his eyes.

We hope you like On the Cover — let us know what you think!
