The New York Philharmonic’s Alan Gilbert on Community: “It’s very conscious for us.”

Alan Gilbert, Music Director of the New York Philharmonic, took some time out from his rehearsal schedule in San Francisco last month to chat with us about community. He says the true importance of being the first New Yorker to lead the New York Philharmonic is that he understands what the orchestra means to the community and to the audience that comes to the concerts, whether it’s a performance at Lincoln Center or a concert in the park. “We are trying to be New York’s orchestra, not just an orchestra in New York.”

Alan Gilbert will join us for our free live event “Talking About Audiences” next May.
