Anyone In NYC?

Heading home, but looking for some good music before you get there? The New York Philharmonic’s Rush Hour Concerts — at 6:45 p.m. — offer shorter concerts at an early hour. On the first of three — January 4 — Alan Gilbert conducts Bernstein’s Symphonic Dances from West Side Story and two Ravel favorites: Mother Goose and La Valse. In tandem with the concert is the launch of two new series: a free Pre-Concert Talk and a Post-Concert “Casual Conversation” at The David Rubenstein Atrium. For more information, visit nyphil.org/rushhour.
