The Fall weekends are always filled with activities for New Yorkers on staycations and those visiting New York City on vacations. From music outdoors to fine art exhibits at museums, from children's activities to lectures, New York abounds with things to do! Check out what's going on in NYC this weekend, and take your pick from all of the fantastic options.

The New York Pops - Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage, Carnegie Hall
March 09, 2018 - New York City

The New York Pops takes on the role of the Hollywood studio orchestra, performing iconic themes from some of the biggest box office successes of the silver screen.

Elias String Quartet - Weill Recital Hall, Carnegie Hall
March 09, 2018 - New York

Tensions, passions, and daring tonal explorations are at the center of this program. Schubert's brief but powerful Quartettsatz opens in an agitated state; despite its lyrical second theme, it never quite releases its tension. The platonic love for a younger, married woman inspired a flurry of compositional activity in the last years of Janá?ek's life. His "Intimate Letters" Quartet is a passionate paean to his love. Beethoven's String Quartet in E-flat Major—also composed near the end of his life—ventures into new harmonic territories and boasts a set of brilliant second-movement variations on a noble theme.

Elite Music Competition Student Recital - Weill Recital Hall, Carnegie Hall

Performers Student Recital

March 11, 2018 -

Come to Alice Tully Hall to hear a new musical and magical version of a very ancient story about an elephant, a monkey, a rabbit, and a bird who must learn to get along. Featuring a Japanese flute called the shinobue, Irish folk drums, a cello, and bass trombone—guess which instrument is which animal! Musicians from the Silk Road Project and Global Musicians Workshop join composer Bruce Adolphe to play his new-and-ancient tale plus new and improvised music on unusual instruments.

MS's Winter Festival celebrates the dawn of chamber music concert life, with four programs performed in Vienna in the 1820s.

The Philadelphia Orchestra - Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage, Carnegie Hall
March 13, 2018 - New York City

Ethereal and dramatic, Michel Van der Aa's concerto was specifically written for Janine Jansen, a violinist who meets the many challenges of this stunning music. Rachmaninoff's Symphony No. 2—a Philadelphia Orchestra specialty—has its own dramatic effects in the final movement, where the composer uncannily captures the sound of cascading Russian church bells. Its heart and soul, however, is the breathtaking third-movement Adagio that spins out a stream of beautiful melodies.
