Spirit of the City
Philharmonic President and Executive Director Zarin Mehta received a Spirit of the City Award from The Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine last evening. For more than three decades, the Cathedral, site of the Orchestra’s free Memorial Day concert, has recognized individuals who have served and inspired the great city of New York, enhancing its character as a beacon of accomplishment, compassion and determination.
These are all words we’d certainly use to describe our fearless leader, shown here being interviewed by NY1 at the annual free open rehearsal at Avery Fisher Hall, a hallmark of his 12 year tenure.

Last night we saw the NY Philharmonic play Debussy’s ‘La Mer’ Suite and Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4. It was absolutely amazing!
It was SO worth waiting on a long line for those free tickets.
Thank you for joining us! It was a great night for our annual Memorial Day concert, with 2,200 people in attendance, both inside The Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine and outside on the lawn.
