Gala Celebrates that New York’s Orchestra Is Back!

Posted December 03, 2021

New York’s Orchestra Is Back! That was the very apt title of last night’s Gala evening with Itzhak Perlman. The heart of the evening was, of course the New York Philharmonic, with Music Director Jaap van Zweden conducting works by Mozart, Prokofiev, and Johann Strauss II, and joining the legendary violinist for Bruch’s beloved Violin Concerto No. 1.

Guests at the Gala, held in Alice Tully Hall, were treated to a full evening’s festivities. They reunited at a pre-concert reception and reconvened at a dinner where they mingled with glamorous guests and Philharmonic musicians — and were regaled by the jazz band Del and the Rad Rompers.
