Each season, Carnegie Hall plays host to some of America's greatest orchestras. Hailing from points coast to coast—Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Houston, Minnesota, New York, Philadelphia, St. Louis, and San Francisco—these orchestras are among the finest in the world.
Having launched The American Orchestra series last season with Maestro David Robertson and the musicians and administrators of the St. Louis Symphony, this season we are delighted that The Philadelphia Orchestra and new Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin have come on board as the featured orchestra. Founded in 1900, The Philadelphia Orchestra quickly established itself as one of the finest orchestras in the US and later in the world. Famous for its "Philadelphia Sound," the orchestra has had some of the greatest names in conducting at its helm. Nézet-Séguin joins Leopold Stokowski, Eugene Ormandy, and Riccardo Muti in taking on the role at a relatively young age. It is exciting for us to be able to follow him and the orchestra through their first official year together.
