Spring For Music at Carnegie Hall

Gail Wein
May 02, 2014

The events listed in this blog are NOT free, unless noted otherwise

Every time I travel, I try to hear the local orchestra in their home hall (yes, I am concert-obsessed). I've never been to Pittsburgh or Winnipeg, and during my very brief visits to Seattle, Cincinnati, and Rochester I wasn’t able to catch any live music. Fortunately, orchestras from these towns (as well as our own New York Philharmonic) will be performing in New York City May 5-10. It's the 4th annual Spring for Music festival at Carnegie Hall; details and more info are here and here, and the schedule is below.

The tickets for every seat at each concert are just $25, and a subscription for all six is $100 - a great bargain for this rare chance to hear ensembles from all over North America. Hundreds of hometown fans of each orchestra travel to New York for the performances, and their exuberant cheering and waving of colorful scarves makes each evening a festive and exciting occasion.

A unique aspect of S4M is the unusual programming: part of the idea of the festival is for orchestras to showcase their artistic philosophies. Orchestras competed for the privilege of participating in the festival by submitting their distinctive and adventurous programs. Which means you get to hear works like John Luther Adams' "Become Oceans", (which just won the Pulitzer prize), "Merry Mount," an opera by neglected mid-20th century American Howard Hanson, and Bruckner's "Ave Maria" motet, as well as works by Mozart, Debussy and Poulenc.

S4M has been a critical success, and increasingly gained traction and attention from audiences. Unfortunately this is the final year for the program; it is a costly endeavor all around, and, after four seasons, its initial funding has run out.

Other upcoming concerts to keep an eye out for around town: Room Full of Teeth, an innovative vocal ensemble, performs a free concert at Music Mondays on May 5; and the first ever New York Philharmonic Biennial, which runs May 28 through June 7 all over town. The Biennial showcases contemporary works from around the world, and includes the whimsical "Gloria - a Pig's Tale" by HK Gruber and performances of works by NY Phil's "very young composers". All of the NY Philharmonic events are ticketed; purchase info for most of the events is at

I hope you'll have a chance to get out there and enjoy some live music! See you at the concerts!
