A Schumann Shoo-in
Following his first-ever rehearsal with the New York Philharmonic, we caught up with 17-year-old pianist (yes, you read that right) Jan Lisiecki to discuss his debut program, on which he performs Schumann’s Piano Concerto. Check out this new video for a sneak peek of his interpretation.
Rush on over to Avery Fisher Hall to catch Jan and the Philharmonic, led by David Zinman, before the program ends tomorrow night.

An enthusiastic Philharmonic audience Saturday evening wouldn’t let violinist Augustin Hadelich go after his performance of Lalo’s Symphonie espagnole. He responded with an encore of the third movement, Andante, from Bach’s Violin Sonata No. 2 in A minor.
Will Hadelich repeat the feat? Catch the last performance of his Avery Fisher Hall debut program Tuesday evening at 7:30 p.m., conducted by Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos.
Student Rush tickets for this week’s performances are available now.

Student Rush tickets are available for tonight’s Philharmonic performance with Garrison Keillor. How will the host of public radio’s A Prairie Home Companion manage to weave together Beethoven’s Fifth, “My Girl,” “Oh, What a Beautiful Morning,” The Notre Dame Victory March, and some Tchaikovsky? It all comes together in the mind of this premier storyteller, who plans a little orchestra improv to close the program.

I want to go to every single concert. I hope there are student tickets to every single concert.
I wonder if there’s a student subscription. That’d be fantastic.
Hope you can join us as often as possible. Student Rush tickets are available for select concerts, check here for info. And here’s more on subscriptions at different levels. Like us on Facebook for other deals throughout the season.

We all know students operate on limited budgets (think: ramen noodles, roommates). But you don’t have to work on Wall Street to enjoy the New York Philharmonic if you have a valid school I.D. Students (high school and above) can take a musical study break with $12.50 rush tickets for select concerts throughout the season through the Philharmonic’s popular Student Rush ticket program. Some concerts are even available up to 10 days in advance. Student Rush tickets are now available for this week’s highly anticipated World Premiere of John Corigliano’s One Sweet Morning, September 30 and October 1 and 4 (visit our Tumblr page and click on the “One Sweet Morning” tag for more information), and there will be more to come!
