Alan Gilbert Receives National Arts Club Medal of Honor

Music Director Alan Gilbert and National Arts Club President Linda Zagaria

The National Arts Club has bestowed Alan Gilbert with its Medal of Honor in Music as he begins his farewell season as Music Director of the New York Philharmonic. The honor recognizes Alan’s wide-ranging contributions to the Philharmonic and symphonic music in the 21st century, from creating new ways for audiences to experience the art form to music education, through his position as Director of Conducting and Orchestral Studies at The Juilliard School. Past recipients include Plácido Domingo, James Levine, Daniel Barenboim, Van Cliburn, Isaac Stern, and Emanuel Ax.

175th Anniversary Opening Gala Concert: Video

This past Wednesday launched the New York Philharmonic’s 175th anniversary season, Music Director Alan Gilbert’s farewell season, and The New World Initiative — the Philharmonic’s season-long, city-wide project revolving around Dvořák’s New World Symphony and its theme of “home.” Alan Gilbert led works tied to the Philharmonic’s rich history of premieres by John Corigliano, Gershwin with Aaron Diehl as soloist, and Dvořák.

It was also the Orchestra’s first-ever live concert broadcast on Facebook. In case you missed it, above is video of Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9 in E minor, Op. 95, From the New World.
