Welcome the joyous return of live performances with Carnegie Hall’s Opening Night Gala. The Philadelphia Orchestra conducted by Yannick Nézet-Séguin launches our exciting season with a performance that includes Shostakovich’s rousing Piano Concerto No. 2—featuring superstar pianist Yuja Wang—and Beethoven’s iconic Symphony No. 5. Beethoven’s love of nature inspired Iman Habibi’s Jeder Baum spricht, a powerful reflection on climate change, while Valerie Coleman’s Seven O’Clock Shout honors frontline workers and the human spirit’s resilience in the time of the pandemic. The evening is completed by the ever-popular Overture to Bernstein’s Candide. Celebrate the return of the music you love where it sounds best: Carnegie Hall.
Individual tickets include prime seating for the concert and entry to either the pre-concert cocktail reception ($1,000) or the post-concert gala dinner (starting at $1,500). Tables (starting at $20,000) include the very best seating for the concert and a table at the post-concert gala dinner.
With the health and safety of our audiences in mind, you may choose to decline attending the cocktail reception or the gala dinner and attend the concert only. As a gala supporter, your reservation will still include the best possible concert seating. All ticket and table prices include a partially tax-deductible donation benefitting Carnegie Hall’s artistic and educational programming.
