      New York Philharmonic This Week with Host Alec Baldwin

      New York Philharmonic This Week

      Thursdays at 8:00 pm (unless otherwise noted)

      An avid music-lover, Alec Baldwin lends his Emmy Award and Tony Award-winning style to one of music's great institutions. Since its founding in 1842, the New York Philharmonic has been the apex for composers, soloists and conductors alike. Bringing to bear that 170-year history, The New York Philharmonic This Week offers the highest musicianship, insight and vision in every program.

      About the Music Director

      New York Philharmonic Music Director Alan Gilbert

      When he succeeded Lorin Maazel as music director in 2009, Alan Gilbert became the first native New Yorker to head the Philharmonic, and is among the youngest music directors in the orchestra's 170-year history. He serves as Director of Conducting and Orchestral Studies at the Juilliard School and as Conductor Laureate to the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra.

      This exciting broadcast venture is underwritten with support from Credit Suisse, global sponsor of the New York Philharmonic, and with generous support from the Kaplen Foundation and the Audrey Love Charitable Foundation; the Philharmonic's corporate partner, MetLife Foundation; and the National Endowment for the Arts.
