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

Join the conversation in a live chat on Facebook or YouTube, or simply tune in at to access the video. Our virtual Opening Night “how to” page has the answers! Find out how to make your stream at home a success.
