The New York Philharmonic’s third annual Shanghai performance residency, July 2–8, has begun.

Philharmonic musicians have also been busy teaching Shanghai Orchestra Academy students — through lessons and a side-by-side rehearsal — and inspiring Very Young Composers. The residency is part of the Shanghai Orchestra Academy and Residency Partnership, presented by Starr International Foundation and a cornerstone and founding component of the New York Philharmonic Global Academy.

NY Philharmonic Alan Gilbert NDR Elbphilharmonie

All of us in the New York Philharmonic family congratulate Alan Gilbert on the news that the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra in Hamburg has appointed him to be their next chief conductor, beginning in the 2019–20 season. It marks Alan’s return to that orchestra, which he served as principal guest conductor from 2004 to 2015 — but now in its brand-new home, where he led the New York Philharmonic this past April. We congratulate the Hamburgers on their choice!

New York Philharmonic the Only Orchestra To Receive Three NEA Grants

After recent uncertainty regarding the federal budget related to arts and culture funding, we are pleased that the New York Philharmonic was awarded three National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) grants for 2017–18 activities. The three programs receiving grants are Philharmonic Schools, YPC Play!, and radio broadcasts.

The Philharmonic is the only orchestra to receive three grants in this funding round.

Congratulations to all who make these programs happen!

The 52nd summer of the New York Philharmonic Concerts in the Parks, Presented by Didi and Oscar Schafer, brought almost 100,000 music lovers to hear the New York Philharmonic perform for free in every New York City borough. In his final appearances in New York as Music Director, Alan Gilbert led masterworks by Dvořák, Bernstein, and Gershwin — all written in New York and premiered by the Philharmonic. Local bands gave pre-concert performances, and audiences joined the Orchestra in community performances of the “Goin’ Home” theme from Dvořák’s New World Symphony, all part of The New World Initiative and the Philharmonic’s 175th anniversary season celebration of its hometown.
