New York Philharmonic puts down roots in Ann Arbor
The Yankees are coming! But instead of pinstripes, they'll don formal wear and wield violins, oboes and other instruments rather than bats, balls and gloves.
The University Musical Society announced today a five-year residency partnership that will bring the New York Philharmonic to Ann Arbor for three extended appearances between 2015 and 2020. The residencies, underwritten by a seven-figure donation to UMS, will include multiple concerts each year, master classes and workshops for students and a range of public activities designed to connect the orchestra with the community in southeastern Michigan.
The partnership begins next fall with three concerts Oct. 9-11, 2015 in Hill Auditorium, including two led by music director Alan Gilbert. The philharmonic will return in the 2017-18 and 2019-20 seasons. The Berlin Philharmonic and another orchestra to be named later will appear in the alternating seasons.
