Welcome to The New York Pops | A Different Kind of Orchestra

dear friends,

I am beyond excited to share that we have surpassed the goal for our matching challenge, raising over $200,000 in support of our orchestra musicians and PopsEd initiatives! Your generosity will help ensure that The New York Pops legacy continues.

As a thank you for your support of the matching challenge, our spring virtual concert American Strings: From Folk to Film will be free to stream. The concert premieres in late May and will feature an ensemble of string players. We hope you will join us.

This spring, we launched Meet the Musicians, a PopsEd video series designed to introduce K-8 students to the instruments of the orchestra and the musicians that play them. This program is a great way for students and families to become familiar with musical instruments and vocabulary, and experience elements of music performance through short demonstrations. I participated with a video about conducting!

Thanks to your continued support, The New York Pops' future is bright. We can't wait to welcome you back to the concert hall. Stay tuned for more information about our 2021-2022 season in the coming weeks!

Steven Reineke, Music Director and Conductor

2020-2021 Season Update:

Since the remainder of our 2019-2020 season was canceled due to COVID-19, we have sincerely appreciated the continued support and generosity of our loyal New York Pops audience during this difficult time.

We had hoped to proceed with our 2020-2021 season as planned. However, due to the ongoing restrictions as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Carnegie Hall has made the difficult decision to cancel all in-person events through July 2021.

For more information, please visit Carnegie Hall's website.

Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to the day we can all share in the joy of music again.

In the meantime, if you would like to support The New York Pops, please consider making a donation to help us keep the music playing.
