The sponsorship includes ticket and hospitality experiences at Lincoln Center’s David Geffen Hall and the New York Philharmonic Concerts in the Parks, Presented by Didi and Oscar Schafer, as well as branding and advertising opportunities. 

The New York Philharmonic will be in good company as it joins Emirates’ roster of the world’s most renowned symphonies including the San Francisco Symphony, and in Australia, the Melbourne and Sydney Symphony Orchestras. Emirates’ support of the New York Philharmonic, San Francisco Symphony and Australian Symphonies will deliver world-class entertainment, connect to music patrons across the globe and highlights the airline’s commitment to arts and culture.

The New York Philharmonic partnership is a demonstration of Emirates’ continued commitment to New York, the city that welcomed Emirates to the United States nearly 12 years ago.
