Music Director and Conductor Yuja Wang, Piano
No matter where you
are, you can experience one of the most meaningful Opening Nights
of all time thanks to a free live stream.
The joyous return of
live performances begins with Carnegie Hall’s Opening Night
Gala. The Philadelphia Orchestra conducted
by Yannick Nézet-Séguin launches this rousing program
with Valerie Coleman’s Seven O’Clock Shout, honoring
frontline workers and the resilience of the human spirit. The
orchestra’s complete Beethoven cycle begins with the iconic
Symphony No. 5, and superstar pianist Yuja Wang joins for
Shostakovich’s Piano Concerto No. 2. Rounding out an unforgettable
concert are Iman Habibi’s Jeder Baum spricht, a
powerful work inspired by Beethoven’s love of nature, and
Bernstein’s ever-popular Overture to Candide.
Office at 57th and Seventh (Monday through Saturday, 11 AM–6
PM; Sunday, 12 PM–6 PM)

Carnegie Hall, all guests must wear a properly fitting mask over
their nose and mouth except when eating or drinking in designated
