What's in a Name

Since 1962, Lincoln Center has been home to one of America’s oldest musical institutions, captivating New Yorkers and visitors alike with outstanding symphony orchestra performances by the New York Philharmonic.

A series of renovations and acoustical improvements has seen the 2,738-seat venue through two name changes in recognition of major philanthropic supporters. Originally opened as Philharmonic Hall, the building was known as Avery Fisher Hall from 1973 until 2015, until the ribbon cutting marked its re-opening as David Geffen Hall.

A Symphony Lover's Delight

The orchestra has had a storied past beginning with its first concert in 1842 in the Apollo Rooms on Lower Broadway to an audience of only 600. More than 175 years later, the New York Philharmonic now attracts fans by the thousands, setting an all-time attendance record at a 2004 event of 14,000 concertgoers.

David Geffen Hall plays host to events year-round, including ensembles, visiting artists, star soloists, music festivals, family concerts, open rehearsals, and more as part of New York City’s rich cultural offerings.

Meet Jaap van Zweden

This autumn, the New York Philharmonic welcomes Jaap van Zweden as their new Music Director. Jaap van Zweden combines classical masterpieces with new works to create timely treasures.

Opening Gala Concert begins on September 20, 2018 featuring the world premier of Ashley Fure's Filament, and runs through June 8, 2019 ending with the world premier of prisoner of the state by David Lang.

Baton in Hand

In 2017, the New York Philharmonic marked its 176th season with a gala opening performing the epic Mahler’s Fifth Symphony in a concert broadcast on Facebook Live, hosted by Alec Baldwin. The Orchestra was led by Jaap van Zweden in his role as Music Director Designate following the retirement of Alan Gilbert.
