New York Philharmonic
Fridays, 8PM-10PM

Music Director Alan Gilbert and the New York Philharmonic welcome you to the weekly broadcasts of one of the world's longest-running and most celebrated orchestras. These programs present concerts from the orchestra's subscription season, along with selections from the Philharmonic's tours, Summertime Classics, and residency at the Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival in Colorado. There are also occasional thematic programs and encore presentations that explore the breadth and depth of the Philharmonic's extensive library of commercial and archival recordings. The New York Philharmonic's first live national radio broadcast took place on October 5, 1930, over the CBS radio network. Since that historic broadcast, the Philharmonic has enjoyed an almost continuous presence on national radio. Hosted by Emmy and Golden-Globe Award-winning actor Alec Baldwin, the New York Philharmonic This Week has been the recipient of numerous broadcasting awards.
