CARNEGIE HALL’S OPENING NIGHT GALA
THE PHILADELPHIA ORCHESTRA

Wednesday, October 6, 2021 at 7:00 p.m.
(Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage)

PROGRAM UPDATE:
Carnegie Hall will reopen its doors to the public on Wednesday, October 6 at 7:00 p.m. with a celebratory Opening Night performance featuring The Philadelphia Orchestra joined by renowned pianist Yuja Wang under the baton of Yannick Nézet-Séguin. The Opening Night program begins with a new work by Valerie Coleman titled Seven O’Clock Shout, an anthem commissioned by the orchestra and written in response to COVID-19, honoring frontline workers. Yuja Wang joins Maestro Nézet-Séguin and the Orchestra as soloist for Shostakovich’s Piano Concerto No. 2 (replacing the originally announced Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2.) and Bernstein’s Overture to Candide has been added to the program. A highlight of the performance will be another topical Philadelphia commission—Iman Habibi’s Jeder Baum spricht—a rhapsodic reflection on the climate crisis written in dialogue with Beethoven’s music. The finale of this season-opening concert will be Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony, kicking off a five-concert Beethoven cycle at Carnegie Hall by the Orchestra. This Opening Night performance will be heard by listeners around the world, launching the eleventh annual Carnegie Hall Live broadcast and digital series with a live radio broadcast on WQXR FM in New York, also streamed on wqxr.org and carnegiehall.org/wqxr.
