Brooklyn Philharmonic

One of the nation’s groundbreaking music ensembles, the Brooklyn Philharmonic has cemented its role as a vital presence in the cultural life of the New York metropolitan area. Devoted to bringing music to the entire Brooklyn community, the Philharmonic serves the borough’s cultural and educational communities through partnerships with Brooklyn Academy of Music, Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Public Library, and New York City’s Department of Education, among other organizations. For the past five decades, the Brooklyn Philharmonic has played a leading role in the presentation of innovative and thematic programming, receiving 21 ASCAP Awards over the last 25 years for “Adventurous Programming of Contemporary Music.” Since its 1954 inception, audiences have embraced the Brooklyn Philharmonic’s commitment to the concept of the orchestra as a contemporary performance ensemble, emphasizing important present-day music, as in the decades of Beethoven and Brahms. The Philharmonic has premiered over 150 works, including 61 commissions.
