dear friends,

I am thrilled to share that two of our dearest friends, Paula and Tom McInerney, have graciously offered The New York Pops a $150,000 matching challenge. To ensure that the legacy of The New York Pops continues, Paula and Tom will match each dollar donated to The New York Pops up to $150,000 - now extended through May 10!

We hope you will join Paula and Tom in this endeavor. With your support, we can continue our PopsEd initiatives, sustain our world-class orchestra, and welcome you back to Carnegie Hall for our 2021-2022 season.

I myself was greatly influenced by the music education opportunities I had as a young, budding musician. Now I have the great privilege of being involved with The New York Pops as we continue to provide these essential services to students at home and in the classroom.

There’s so much to be learned from early music education. With your help we can continue to inspire countless musicians and music lovers for years to come. Click here to make a matched, fully tax-deductible donation.

Thank you for your consideration and support. We hope it won't be long before we can safely gather and celebrate the power of live music together.

Steven Reineke, Music Director and Conductor
The New York Pops


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.
