PHOTOS: Fun at the Phil: Sleepover at the Museum

Posted March 09, 2020

The New York Philharmonic presented Fun at the Phil: Sleepover at the Museum, honoring composer / author / Philharmonic Vice Chair Karen LeFrak for her dedication to the Philharmonic and featuring her orchestral work based on her children’s book about a young boy celebrating his birthday at a natural history museum. Butterflies welcomed children and their families into the hall, where Ankush Kumar Bahl made his debut leading the Orchestra in Sleepover at the Museum and Saint-Saëns’s Carnival of the Animals — both narrated by Jamie Bernstein — and attendees of the family benefit enjoyed a fun-filled post-concert lunch.
