dear friends,

I hope your summer is off to a great start. We are currently preparing for our Fall Cabaret with Max von Essen - our first in-person event since February 2020! We hope you will join us at Feinstein's/54 Below on October 4.

Until our return to Carnegie Hall later this year for our 2021-2022 season, we have released new digital projects that I think you will enjoy.

American Strings: From Folk to Film is a virtual concert featuring The New York Pops strings in a program of American folk songs, fiddle tunes, novelty pieces, and film scores. As a thank you for your incredible support this past year, this performance is free to stream. Click here to watch.

We also recently released Russian Winds, a performance by The New York Pops Woodwind Quintet. Funded, in part, by New York City’s Cultural Immigrant Initiative grant, this program of works by Russian composers was inspired by the heritage of Russian culture in Forest Hills and Rego Park, Queens. We are proud to celebrate the immigrant communities that contribute to the incredible diversity of our beloved New York City.

Our PopsEd programs have stayed strong throughout the past year. I am extremely proud of the three new videos we created with the 2021 Kids on the Virtual Stage students. It was inspiring to collaborate with these 36 talented New York City middle school students. We also recently released 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.

I hope you'll take advantage of this opportunity to enjoy The New York Pops at home, and I can't wait to see you in person again!
