The 2015–2016 season features two large orchestral concerts in the legendary Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage. In December, The New York Pops performs A Charlie Brown Christmas in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the iconic TV classic. A spring concert celebrates another important anniversary–Carnegie Hall’s 125th—with a performance of a new Carnegie Hall-commissioned work by Caroline Shaw as well as Robert Xavier Rodriguez’s The Dot and the Line: A Romance in Lower Mathematics, a co-commissioned work by Carnegie Hall and Dallas Symphony Orchestra, inspired by the classic 1963 book of the same name, performed by the Orchestra of St. Luke’s.
This season’s annual holiday Family Concert features The New York Pops. The Pops’ brand of lively music-making is perfect for the entire family and creates long-lasting memories. Families can also explore diverse music representing a variety of cultures, right from our own great city of New York, through two concerts entitled “My City, My Song.” These concerts, based on Carnegie Hall’s Musical Explorers program, invite the audience to discover music from different parts of the world that can be found right in their own New York City.
