NY PHIL Off The Grid, chamber music parties hosted by Musicians from the New York Philharmonic performing in unexpected locations throughout New York City, continues with the second event of the season on Thursday, January 19, 2017, at 7:15 p.m. Off The Grid – Vol. 5. The event will be held at a location in Brooklyn near the F, G, and R subway lines; as with past NY PHIL Off The Grid events, the exact location of the event will remain a secret until shortly before the day of the event.
For early access to tickets, sign up for the pre-sale at nyphil.org/offthegrid by noon on January 10. NY PHIL Off The Grid is a series of free or low-cost events featuring music, food, and cocktails inspired by upcoming Philharmonic concert programs that take place in unique and intimate locations that encourage interaction among the musicians and the audience. The 2016-17 season’s first Off The Grid event, presented at Pondicheri, featured music, food, and specialty cocktails.
Last season the Philharmonic also hosted two low-cost concert and after-party events, When in Rome, held in the David Rubenstein Atrium in connection with a program including Respighi’s Roman Trilogy and Wunderland, held on David Geffen Hall’s Grand Promenade in connection with a program of music by Sibelius and Mahler. The New York Philharmonic will also host an after-party following a subscription concert at David Geffen Hall in spring 2017 (details to be announced).
NY PHIL Off The Grid is part of a multiyear audience development effort supported by The Wallace Foundation aimed towards attracting and growing future audiences. The series is one of several ways the Philharmonic connects with new audiences and expands access through free and low-cost programs.
