Bill Murray, Jan Vogler and Friends

October 16, 2017

​When it comes to Bill Murray, expect the unexpected. He may be best known as one of the movies' greatest funny men, but 2017 sees Bill Murray setting out on a rather more musical venture. This series of concerts sees Bill up on stage together with cellist Jan Vogler, pianist Vanessa Perez and violinist Mira Wang, creating a wonderful blend of storytelling, chamber music, poetry reading and more.

Emanuel Ax, Leonidas Kavakos, and Yo-Yo Ma

February 22, 2018

Three of the world's most highly-esteemed classical musicians are brought together by the music of Brahms for one special concert at the historic Carnegie Hall. Chinese American cello virtuoso Yo-Yo Ma, Grammy winning pianist Emanuel Ax and Greek violin phenomenon Leonidas Kavakos will perform Brahms' arresting piano trios.

Itzhak Perlman

March 22, 2018

The Grammy- and Emmy Award-winning Israeli-American is renowned as the pre-eminent violinist of the 20th century after coming to prominence at the tender age of 13 on the Ed Sullivan Show in 1958. Despite losing the use of his legs due to polio, he has overcome the odds to become one of the most successful violin virtuosos in the world and his haunting music work has featured in movies including Schindler's List and Memoirs of a Geisha.

Boston Symphony Orchestra

April 11-13, 2018

An exciting double program by the visiting Boston Symphony Orchestra will be hosted at Isaac Stern next April, as part of their spring season! Conducted by Andris Nelsons, this special concert will feature guest pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet with two compositions that explore themes of faith and danger. Bernstein's Symphony No. 2, "The Age of Anxiety" focuses on four disparate characters in New York City, all searching for faith; this is followed by Shostakovich's Symphony No. 4, whose unorthodox style put him in danger during the early Soviet era.
