The New York Philharmonic

Founded in 1842 by a group of local musicians led by American-born Ureli Corelli Hill, the New York Philharmonic is by far the oldest symphony orchestra in the United States, and one of the oldest in the world. The New York Philharmonic, a longtime media pioneer, began radio broadcasts in 1922, and is currently represented by The New York Philharmonic This Week — syndicated nationally 52 weeks per year.

Known for his Pulitzer-prize winning Second Concerto for Orchestra, Steven Stucky wrote his first 4 symphonies before he was 30 but withdrew all of them.
