Classical Music | New York Philharmonic Performs with Grammy Winning Chorus (LIVESTREAM at an indoor public place)

Saturday, June 3, 2023, 8:00 pm to 10:15 pm

This live-streamed performance is presented on the 50-foot Digital Wall at an in-door public place.

New York Philharmonic; Jaap van Zweden, conductor; Frank Huang, violin; The Men of the Crossing, chorus; Young People's Chorus of New York City; and Else Torp, soprano, perform The World Premiere of unEarth, a multimedia event by Julia Wolfe that, in the composer's words, "digs deep into the stories and science of our planet -- looking at forced migrations, adaptations, species land loss, and changing seas ... singing our fears and hoping for a way forward."

Julia Wolfe (1958-present), unEarth

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.

Jaap van Zweden began his tenure as the 26th Music Director of the New York Philharmonic in September 2018. He also serves as Music Director of the Hong Kong Philharmonic, a post he has held since 2012, and becomes Music Director of the Seoul Philharmonic in 2024. He has conducted orchestras on three continents, appearing as guest with, in Europe, the Orchestre de Paris, Amsterdam's Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, Vienna Philharmonic, Berlin Philharmonic, and London Symphony Orchestra, and, in the United States, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, The Cleveland Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic, and other distinguished ensembles.

Frank Huang joined the New York Philharmonic as Concertmaster in September 2015. Since performing with the Houston Symphony in a nationally broadcast concert at the age of 11 he has appeared with orchestras throughout the world including The Cleveland Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, Indianapolis Symphony, NDR Radio Philharmonic Orchestra of Hannover, Amadeus Chamber Orchestra, and the Genoa Orchestra. He has also performed on NPR's Performance Today, ABC's Good Morning America, and CNN's American Morning with Paula Zahn. He has performed at Wigmore Hall (in London), Salle Cortot (Paris), Kennedy Center (Washington, DC), and Herbst Theatre (San Francisco), as well as a second recital in Alice Tully Hall (New York). Before joining the Houston Symphony as concertmaster in 2010, he served as first violinist of the Grammy Award-winning Ying Quartet and was a faculty member at the Eastman School of Music.

The Men of the Crossing is a Grammy-winning professional chamber choir conducted by Donald Nally and dedicated to new music. It is committed to working with creative teams to make and record new, substantial works for choir that explore and expand ways of writing for, singing in, and listening to choirs. Many of its nearly 130 commissioned premieres address social, environmental, and political issues. The Crossing collaborates with some of the world's most accomplished ensembles and artists, including the New York Philharmonic, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, American Composers Orchestra, and more. With a commitment to recording its commissions, The Crossing has released 25 albums, receiving two Grammy Awards for Best Choral Performance (in 2018 and 2019), and seven Grammy nominations.
