City Walk | New Amsterdam and the Evolution of New York


Before there was New York, there was a sleepy outpost of the Dutch West India Company called Nieuw Amsterdam. The entirety of the colony that was New Amsterdam--which eventually evolved into one of the world's greatest cities--could be found south of Wall Street. Participants will walk through what is now known as the Financial District, discuss the Dutch origins in New Amsterdam, their relationship with the indigenous Lenape tribe, the transition from Dutch trading outpost to English colony to the (temporary) capital of a new independent nation, and much more.

Classical Music | NY Philharmonic Memorial Day Concert


The New York Philharmonic, led by Jaap van Zweden, presents Bruckner’s Eighth. About the Piece Josef Anton Bruckner (1824 - 1896) was an Austrian composer and organist best known for his symphonies, masses, Te Deum and motets. The first are considered emblematic of the final stage of Austro-German Romanticism because of their rich harmonic language, strongly polyphonic character, and considerable length. Bruckner's compositions helped to define contemporary musical radicalism, owing to their dissonances, unprepared modulations, and roving harmonies. “Beauty is what Bruckner is talking about,” says Jaap van Zweden. In Symphony No. 8 beauty takes many forms: its gradual unfolding, burnished brass sonorities, soaring lyricism, and a triumphant ending. An inspiring, spiritual way to remember those who died while serving in America’s armed forces. About the Performers Founded in 1842, The New York Philharmonic Orchestra is one of the oldest musical institutions in the United States and the oldest of the "Big Five" orchestras. The Philharmonic's home is David Geffen Hall, located in New York's Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. Conductor Jaap van Zweden has become an international presence on three continents over the past decade. He is the 26th Music Director of the New York Philharmonic. He has appeared as guest conductor with many other leading orchestras around the globe, among them the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, The Cleveland Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Vienna Philharmonic, Berlin Philharmonic, Orchestre national de France, and London Symphony Orchestra. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis on the day of the performance. Ticket distribution will begin at 5:00 PM. The line is usually VERY long.
