The New York Philharmonic Will Present GET YOUR PHIL: NEW MUSIC FEST

The New York Philharmonic will present Get Your Phil: New Music Fest, June 9-18, 2020. The festival will include five video broadcasts as Facebook and YouTube Premieres, including World Premiere performances and a Young People's Concert; Living Music: Get Your Phil Edition, a special presentation of the popular internet variety show hosted by Nadia Sirota, featuring performances and conversation with Philharmonic musicians; and a digital conversation about new music.

The Philharmonic will present five broadcasts as Facebook and YouTube Premieres, which allows communal viewing and commenting in real time (all available on-demand afterward) and co-present Living Music: Get Your Phil Edition, hosted by the Philharmonic's Marie-Josée Kravis Creative Partner Nadia Sirota. Like the Philharmonic's Kravis Nightcap new music series, which Ms. Sirota hosts, these broadcasts will feature art and conversation with composers and performers, as well as performance footage from Philharmonic events, including Nightcap and the Philharmonic's GRoW @ Annenberg Sound ON new music series.
