The New York Philharmonic announces details of HOME, the monthlong festival celebrating the opening of the new David Geffen Hall following an accelerated two-year renovation, October 7–30, 2022. Throughout the month, the NY Phil and Lincoln Center activate the reimagined spaces throughout the building with performances by a diverse array of guest artists. The month begins and closes with low-cost and free events; Philharmonic subscription concerts juxtapose World Premieres with cornerstones of the repertoire; two contrasting Opening Galas, co-presented by Lincoln Center and the Philharmonic, mark the occasion; and new NY Phil presentations are introduced.
