Suit up for the 2013–2014 season at Carnegie Hall, featuring the Philadelphia Orchestra, conducted by Yannick Nézet-Séguin, who will be joined by violinist Joshua Bell for Saint-Saëns’s blazing Spanish dance-infused “Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso, Op. 28” and Ravel’s “Tzigane.” Bassist, cellist and singer Esperanza Spalding will close out the concert with arrangements of songs from her album, Chamber Music Society. After the concert, join more than 600 guests for a black-tie gala dinner at the Waldorf Astoria, chaired by Annette and Oscar de la Renta and co-chaired by Mercedes T. Bass, Diane von Furstenberg, Barry Diller, Marie-Josée and Henry Kravis, and Beatrice Santo Domingo. Confirmed attendees include Veronica Bulgari, Ambassador Ron Prosor, Jessye Norman and Barbara Walters. Get a sneak peek by listening to a sample on the Carnegie Hall website.
