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.

See Amanda Gordon’s coverage of the event on Bloomberg.com.

Happy New Year and good fortune to all.
