First I went to New York to see the Maestro conduct his music with the Philadelphia Orchestra and Anne-Sophie Mutter at Carnegie Hall back in April 2022. Now, I am definitely going back to New York for this. I am getting tickets the moment they are available to order. Awesome!

Exciting news! 

 

Based on glancing at the NY Phil's Archive, I believe the last public performance leading the Phil that JW did was in October 2011 with Gil Shaham on violin.

Of course, Williams recently conducted the NY Phil to create A Gathering of Friends but that was not a public event. He also contributed a video tribute for the online gala during COVID, but that was spoken not conducted.

My college was  invited to join the solo horn audition but had to cancel due to the covid cases in my section. I send this news to him and said you only had to won this and get to play with Johnny!!

Think Anne-Sophie Mutter will still be touring with him and they’ll play the violin concerto no. 2 in NY for the second time?

Any idea when tickets will start selling and if there will be some sort of presale? Thinking about planning a trip for this.

Tickets are on sale! The majority of the good tickets were gone before they went on sale to the public though. I was a little disappointed I couldn't get a little better seats but hopefully they are still great!

A pity, if not unexpected. I wouldn't be opposed to considering combining this with another visit to NYC (I want to go back there anyway), but it's way too far ahead to plan anything, and by the time I would feel comfortable committing to a trip, all tickets will be long sold out.

Got my ticket, I'm in row B on the end in the orchestra section.  It won't be the best seat in the house, but it's close and was "only" $175.

 

I've been to every concert he's held at David Geffen Hall, so couldn't miss this one!

Had that in my cart, but it vanished after I made an account. Grabbed the seat on the opposite corner - same angle, different side. See you there!

I was torn on where to buy seats. I needed four together so I went with First Tier Rear Side A-93,A-95,A-97,A-99.

I was looking at the tickets while they were still on presale and they were all cheaper then! Prices went up when it opened to the public. Of course you have to pay in to become a member for presale.

I'm going to this!! Best seat I was able to get was on the very edge a few rows back from the stage -- hopefully I can still see OK despite the suboptimal angle.

Do you still have to show a medical pass to go to see the NYP? I'd love to go.

 

On there site I saw this the other day.

So not really an answer because they are still figuring it out.

Does anyone know why the parterre and other sections behind the stage were never made available? Would there be a reason why they wouldn't want audience members there?
