Something’s happening here. Something vital. Exciting. Passionate. Inspiring. And more than a little fun. Already Alan Gilbert and the New York Philharmonic are bringing audiences to their feet with their fresh approach to classics old and new. You can literally feel the chemistry between this conductor, this orchestra, and the music they perform. There’s just one ingredient missing from the formula: you. For a limited time you can experience the magic of Alan Gilbert and the New York Philharmonic at an extraordinary introductory rate: pick your favorite three concerts out of the 91 in this brochure and you’ll receive a 33% discount. That’s like getting one of your hand-picked concerts free. But hurry – this offer ends Monday, November 30th at midnight. After that, the cost of great music goes up. Your seats are waiting now at nyphil.org or 212-875-5656.
