Meetup Description: Another Recession Special!
Given the high interest in the MeetUp at the New York Philharmonic in March, we have organized another event with the orchestra. On Thursday, May 7, 2009, the New York Philharmonic is performing a program featuring Mahler?s Symphony No. 1, Titan. Also on the concert is the world premiere of a work by Grammy-winning composer, Peter Lieberson, and features the renowned mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato. This new work is a song cycle of texts by various poets, including Rainer Maria Rilke. All pieces on the program will be conducted by Alan Gilbert, who becomes the new Music Director of the New York Philharmonic next year. Every classical music lover should take the opportunity to hear a Mahler symphony performed live ? the experience will bring you to your feet. Gustav Mahler was actually Music Director of the New York Philharmonic in the last years of his life[masked], and his symphonies have since been a signature of the Philharmonic.
A block of 40 seats is being held for the German Culture MeetUp Group. For those who attended the Handel concert and found themselves seated apart from the group, please know that special consideration has been given to the ticketing for this event, and you are guaranteed a seat next to another group member and within the group block. All seats are on the orchestra level for a price of just $29 each. In order to take advantage of this offer, members should call Arlene Jacobs at (212)[masked] or email her at [address removed]. The cut-off date will be Monday, May 4, 2009, at 4:30 PM. Buyers should have a credit card ready and their tickets will be at the Avery Fisher Hall box office in the names of the people who respond. There is no limit to the number of tickets that can be purchased by an individual. Please note that the group sales box office is open Monday through Friday 10:00 AM until 5:00 PM, so don?t panic if you are unable to contact the box office over the weekend.
*When ordering tickets please remember to mention that you are a member of the GERMAN MeetUp Group, as there may be other promotions for different MeetUp Groups that evening. If you don't mention GERMAN MeetUp specifically, you may find yourself sitting apart from the group.
At the end of the night, if everyone is not too tired we'll meet for a drink or two at the bar across the street. Please let me know if you are up for that and I'll suggest a specific location.
