New York Philharmonic

46:44

In conjunction with “Alan Gilbert Season Finale: A Concert for Unity” (June 8–10, 2017), Alan Gilbert’s final subscription concerts as Music Director, on June 7, 2017, the New York Philharmonic presented “What Is Cultural Diplomacy?” — a free public symposium exploring the role of the arts in forging a common humanity across borders. Held at Lincoln Center’s Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse, the event was moderated by journalist Fareed Zakaria, was hosted by Gilbert, and featured cellist Yo-Yo Ma, Lincoln Center president Debora L. Spar, Iraqi cellist Karim Wasfi, and UNESCO director-general Irina Bokova as panelists.
