Yale in New York
“The Yale School of Music has established a formidable presence with its Yale in New York series at Carnegie Hall… presenting inventive programs of mostly new or unusual works.”
– Allan Kozinn, New York Times
The Yale in New York concert series celebrates the exciting collaborations that are the heart and history of the Yale School of Music. Under the artistic direction of David Shifrin, the series has presented YSM faculty, alumni, and student performers in adventurous repertoire.
Programs often focus on a creative theme, such as the tradition of the concertante repertoire or the classical legacy of Benny Goodman. Several programs explore Yale’s own musical history, including the music of Paul Hindemith (a member of the faculty 1940–1953) and voices recorded by the Oral History of American Music project at the Yale Libraries.
