Fri, February 15th: New York Philharmonic

Dear One Brick Volunteers: We are a small nonprofit that helps hundreds of community organizations each year. We run on a shoestring budget, but we have expenses like insurance, this website, and training materials. We also employ one person who makes sure the train stays on its track. We don't get any foundation or government grants. 30% of the budget is raised during the Annual Campaign going on right now. This year we need to raise $30,000 to keep One Brick afloat. Last year hundreds of volunteers donated $10 or $20 and it made a huge difference.

If you found One Brick useful this year, and you feel we are
making a difference, please consider making a donation.

Thank You

Event Description

The New York Philharmonic puts on a series of subscription concerts for the fall and winter seasons, Tuesdays through Saturdays at the majestic Avery Fisher Hall.   More details about the performances are available at, including the composers and pieces that will be played, and the conductor for the evening.

What we'll be doing

Volunteers will serve as Greeters as first time attendees are entering the hall.  We'll have a table set up in the main lobby, with free gifts for the first time single ticket buyers we have reached out to.  The Greeters will hand out the gifts, answer questions about the Philharmonic and the hall, and then accompany ticket buyers up the escalator or elevator to show them where the bathroom is on their level of the hall and where to find the door to get to their seats.

What you should know

Tickets to the concert(s) will be provided to all Greeters.  Dress will be all black, and the NY Philharmonic will provide name tags/badges to help ticket buyers identify them as Greeters.

Where to meet

Lobby of Avery Fisher Hall

Organization: New York Philharmonic

"Founded in 1842, the New York Philharmonic is by far the oldest symphony orchestra in the United States, and one of the oldest in the world. It currently plays some 180 concerts a year, and on May 5, 2010, gave its 15,000th concert — a milestone unmatched by any other symphony orchestra. Alan Gilbert began his tenure as Music Director in 2009, the latest in a distinguished line of musical giants that has included Lorin Maazel, Kurt Masur, Zubin Mehta, Pierre Boulez, and Leonard Bernstein. Since its inception the Orchestra has championed the new music of its time, commissioning or premiering many important works, such as Dvořák's Symphony No. 9, From the New World; Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 3; Gershwin's Concerto in F; and Copland's Connotations. This pioneering tradition continues to the present day, with works of major contemporary composers scheduled each season, including John Adams's On the Transmigration of Souls; Magnus Lindberg's EXPO; and Christopher Rouse's Odna Zhizn. "

Transit: The Hall is located on W. 65th Street and Broadway, near the 66th St. 1 train and the 59th St. Columbus Circle A/B/C/D trains
