Dragon on the Plaza
Join us at 5 p.m. today for a traditional dragon dance on Josie Robertson Plaza at Lincoln Center, just outside the doors of Avery Fisher Hall. It’s all part of the Philharmonic’s Chinese New Year festivities, culminating in a special concert at 7:30 p.m. to welcome the Year of the Snake.
You might even spot Lady White, from the legend of the white serpent.

Scene Last Night
Wilbur Ross, Kenneth Buckfire, Henry Cornell, and a Dragon Puppet walk into Avery Fisher Hall …
It’s no joke. Stars and dignitaries alike came out for last night’s Chinese New Year celebration at the Philharmonic … and the party didn’t stop when the concert was over. The Philharmonic’s first-ever Chinese New Year Gala dinner took place on the Grand Promenade following the concert as guests had the chance to meet, greet, and eat with the performers.
