“Reuniting with my New York Philharmonic musicians after a year of being kept apart will be a very emotional experience and one of the great joys of this new year,” said Music Director Jaap van Zweden. “It’s been so difficult to be kept apart due to COVID-19, but this is a big step toward recovery and reemerging stronger than ever.”
“Music is essential,” said Linda and Mitch Hart President and CEO Deborah Borda. “This truth has been reinforced by the smiles of New Yorkers who came upon NY Phil Bandwagon and the thanks expressed by our audiences on our social media broadcasts. Nothing quite matches the live concert experience, but we have created NYPhil+ and set a reasonable price so that as many people as possible can enjoy the brilliance of the New York Philharmonic wherever, and whenever, they can. Today’s launch is only the first step for this growing and evolving portal to the world of the Philharmonic.”
