To the strains of "Morning Mood" from Grieg's Peer Gynt Suite No. 1, Op. 46 — arranged for wind quintet by Joachim Linckelmann, as performed by the Principal Woodwind Quintet of the New York Philharmonic — U.S. Ambassador to Japan Caroline Kennedy welcomes Music Director Alan Gilbert and others to her official residence in Tokyo for the ensemble's command performance for dignitaries during the Orchestra's ASIA / WINTER 2014 tour.

Throwback Thursday

Jackie Kennedy and John D. Rockefeller III

50 years ago, two special guests attended Opening Night of the Philharmonic's 1963–64 season in style: Jackie Kennedy and John D. Rockefeller III.

You, too, can be among the season-opening attendees. The box office opens Sunday at noon, when you can grab tickets to the Opening Gala with Yo-Yo Ma, the subscription season-opening concerts with Artist-in-Residence Yefim Bronfman, and any of this season's other 100+ concerts. If you're a subscriber, you can get your tickets now and take advantage of the One Week Sale, which ends this Sunday at noon.
