Alan Gilbert To Conduct Philharmonic Joined by Musicians from Around the World, Celebrating Music’s Power to Unite

 

Alan Gilbert and the New York Philharmonic believe in the power of music to heal, build bridges, and unite across borders. From the free performance of Mahler’s Resurrection Symphony on the tenth anniversary of 9/11 and performing at the United Nations this past December to historic tours and deep international partnerships, the Orchestra and Alan Gilbert have long used music to make the world a better place. 

In his final subscription program, Alan Gilbert will lead the New York Philharmonic joined by musicians from orchestras around the world in concerts showcasing the universal language of music.

Alan Gilbert Season Finale: A Concert for Unity, June 8–10, will feature Gilbert conducting the Orchestra and musicians the Philharmonic has invited from orchestras in Australia, China, Cuba, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Lebanon, Mexico, Russia, South Africa, South Korea, Turkey, Venezuela, the United Kingdom, and the United States in Mahler’s Symphony No. 7.

Yo-Yo Ma (June 8) and Wynton Marsalis (June 9), two close friends of the Philharmonic who share a deep commitment to musical humanism, will appear as special guest artists.

The concerts will launch a new initiative to be led by Alan Gilbert following his tenure as Philharmonic Music Director in which musicians from around the world will come together to perform music at critical times in support of peace, development, and human rights.
