About the Performers
The New York Philharmonic, one of the leading world orchestras, was founded in 1842 by the American conductor Ureli Corelli Hill, with the aid of the Irish composer William Vincent Wallace. The first concert of the Philharmonic Society took place on December 7, 1842 in the Apollo Rooms on lower Broadway before an audience of 600. It is the oldest major symphony orchestra in the United States in continual existence and one of the oldest in the world.

Yunchan Lim is a pianist from South Korea. In 2022 at 18 years old, Lim became the youngest person ever to win gold at the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition. In 2018, Lim won second prize and the Chopin Special Award in the Cleveland International Piano Competition for Young Artists. The same year, he was the youngest participant in the Thomas & Evon Cooper International Competition where he won third prize and the audience prize. Lim has performed with orchestras such as the Korea Symphony, Suwon Philharmonic, Busan Philharmonic Orchestra, Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, Cleveland Orchestra, and others.

Recognized worldwide for his natural ease and extraordinary collaborative spirit, American conductor James Gaffigan has attracted international attention for his equitable prowess as both a conductor of symphony orchestras and opera. Gaffigan is the newly appointed General Music Director of Komische Oper Berlin and is in his second season as Music Director of the Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia in Valencia, where his production of Wozzeck was widely acclaimed. He serves as Principal Guest Conductor of both the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra, where he is in his ninth and final season, and the Trondheim Symphony Orchestra & Opera. He additionally serves as Music Director of the Verbier Festival Junior Orchestra, where he champions the education of promising young musicians. In June 2021, Gaffigan finished his tenure as Chief Conductor of the Luzerner Sinfonieorchester, a position he held for 10 years where he raised the orchestra's international profile with highly successful recordings and tours abroad. In the 2022/23 season, he leads productions of La Boheme and Tristan und Isolde at Valencia's Les Arts, La Boheme at the Metropolitan Opera, and Tristan und Isolde at Santa Fe Opera. Symphonically, he returns to the National Symphony Orchestra; directs the Orchestre de Paris; returns to the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl; and more.
