New York Philharmonic

Thursday at 8 p.m. on VPR Classical

The two-hour radio program, which is broadcast and syndicated nationally 52 weeks a year by the WFMT Radio Network, represents virtually the Orchestra’s entire 2014-15 season. It includes interviews with Philharmonic musicians, guest artists, and conductors.

Interspersed throughout the year are programs taken from the Philharmonic’s tours, Summertime Classics, and the orchestra’s residency at the Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival in Colorado. There will also be a handful of thematic programs and encore presentations that explore the breadth and depth of the Philharmonic’s extensive library of commercial and archival recordings.

Alan Gilbert and the New York Philharmonic welcome you to broadcasts by one of the world's longest-running and most celebrated orchestras!
