New York Philharmonic

I worked for the New York Philharmonic Archives the summer before its 2017–2018 season (which included the orchestra’s 175th anniversary as well as Leonard Bernstein centenary celebrations) and wrote “The History in This Program” features in subscription and film series program books. Program text has not been archived online, but the books themselves can be accessed electronically via the Leon Levy Digital Archives.
