The New York Philharmonic (officially the Philharmonic-Symphony Society of New York)[1] is a symphony orchestra based in New York City in the United States. It is one of the American orchestras commonly referred to as the "Big Five".[2] The Philharmonic's home is Avery Fisher Hall, located in New York's Lincoln Center.

Organized in 1842, the orchestra is older than any other extant American symphonic institution by nearly four decades; its record-setting 14,000th concert was given in December 2004.[3]

Alan Gilbert is the Philharmonic's current music director and Zarin Mehta (brother of former music director Zubin Mehta) is the orchestra's current president.
