About the Program

Conductor—and our sportscaster for the evening—Neal Gittleman leads the Philharmonic in a fun-for-the-whole-family concert that celebrates the music of sports! From football fight songs to figure skating waltzes, this concert covers the soundtrack for those moments of triumph and heartache, great athleticism, and bad calls. It’s an evening full of fun, celebrity guests, and one surprise after another!
