The New York Philharmonic announces that Gustavo Dudamel — the Philharmonic’s future Oscar L. Tang and H.M. Agnes Hsu-Tang Music and Artistic Director — will conduct the concerts on April 25–27, 2024, which follow his appearance conducting the NY Phil’s Spring Gala. Juanjo Mena, who had been scheduled to conduct these concerts, has withdrawn from his appearances due to illness.

The concert start time on Thursday, April 25, has been changed to 8:00 p.m. ET.
