New York Philharmonic
Founded in 1842 by local musicians, the New York Philharmonic is the oldest symphony orchestra in the United States and one of the oldest in the world. The Philharmonic performs across the United States and around the world, but its archives and concert halls are primarily located in New York’s Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.
Serving Generations of Music Lovers
With its rich history of over 170 years of music and performance, the New York Philharmonic is one of the leading cultural institutions in the United States. Its reputation for commissioning and premiering works by leading composers is recognized worldwide, ever since its premier of Beethoven‘s Symphony No. 9 in 1846. For decades, the Philharmonic has worked with emerging technology to create new opportunities to listen to their recordings, from radio broadcasts in the 1920s, to present day Facebook live concerts, and the GRoW funded Sound ON music series held at the Appel Room near Lincoln Center. The Philharmonic connects with up to 50 million people each season through live concerts, worldwide tours, its digital recording series, international broadcasts on television, radio, and online; and as a resource through its varied education programs.
