Breguet to Sponsor N.Y. Philharmonic Opening Gala
For the first time Breguet is partnering with the New York Philharmonic and sponsoring the symphony’s opening night gala on Sept. 22.
Music Director, Alan Gilbert, will begin his second season as music director of the New York Philharmonic when he conducts the orchestra’s opening night at 7:30, with the gala presented by Breguet. The concert which celebrates the philharmonic’s 169th season will feature the U.S. Premiere of Wynton Marsalis’ Symphony No. 3, Swing Symphony, a New York Philharmonic Co-Commission with the Berlin Philharmonic, Los Angeles Philharmonic and The Barbican, performed jointly by the New York Philharmonic and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra.
The Swiss luxury watch brand has been a sponsor for many musical concerts. For example, it sponsors the annual Geneva International Music Competition (Concours de Genéve) and the Lucerne Festival. In recent years, Breguet has also sponsored a series of concerts in the U.S. with conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen and the Los Angeles Philharmonic in 2007.
