Carnegie Hall Presents

Philadelphia Too

Still clapping? Secure seats for the next three electrifying Philadelphia Orchestra concerts before they are all gone. 

Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts Shostakovich’s intense, politically charged Symphony No. 5 and Stravinsky’s Le sacre du printemps, which infamously caused riots in 1913 for its explosive, driving rhythms. In May, Sir Simon Rattle leads the orchestra in Beethoven’s evocative “Pastoral” Symphony and music from Berg’s Wozzeck in an evening of unpredictable theatricality you won’t want to miss.

Three-concert series starts at $105.
