American Symphony Orchestra Tickets
The American Symphony Orchestra is a classical music group that has been functioning since 1962. It is based in New York City, and is one of the oldest and most prestigious institutions of the area. Like the “New York City Ballet”, the orchestra too has a reputation of delivering quality performances that fully embody high culture. It wants to cater to those who have a taste for classical art, while educating and developing an appreciation for it in those who do not. The orchestra was originally put together by a conductor called Leopold Stokowski who wanted to bring the symphony form of music to the local audiences. Such an arrangement has always been associated with the elitist; Stokowski thus wanted to create such a band that would be accessible to the average audience. Today, it is being run under the leadership of Leon Botstein who is the musical director and the lead conductor of the group. They are known for putting together some really elegant concerts, thus it will be worthwhile to get American Symphony Orchestra tickets and attend one of their shows. In the present day, the orchestra holds its concerts at the “Carnegie Hall” and at “Symphony Space”. These concerts are managed by Erica Kiesewetter.

Back in the day when the orchestra was originally formed, Stokowski was 80 and already had his share of experience in the field. In the beginning, he would work as the musical director. He took the assistance of Amos Meller in the early years. Their creative partnership continued on until May of 1972. He was at that point 90 years old, and thus he decided to go back to England. When he left, Kazuyoshi Akiyama took his place and served the orchestra for 5 years. The American Symphony Orchestra then went through a number of conductors through the rest of the 80s. Famous ones included Guiseppe Patané and Moshe Atzmon and John Mauceri. In the 1990s, the institution had more competent leaders with the likes of Catherine Comet and Leon Botstein. The latter already had quite a reputation for he was, at the time, the president of "Bard College".
The orchestra went through a lot of progress during Botstein’s tenure. There were many principle creative changes. The symphony decided to innovate and thought of ways in which they could attract the larger audience of their city. Thus, they began to play concerts that would be inspired by literature, artwork, and politics so that it captures the interest of the mainstream listener. They were known as the "Vanguard Series". However, at the same time, they were working to preserve the true nature of classical music. They were attempting to keep the recordings of their rare performances safe, and not let them be just another mark on their portfolio. They have been successful so far in preserving some of the old compositions in their entirety. The others that had some missing parts were recreated over the years by the different musical directors that took over the orchestra.
At times, the American Symphony Orchestra tickets are also sold outside of New York City and as part of various music festivals. For example, they have been part of the "Symphony Space" series organized by the "Classics Declassified". They are also the principle music symphony at "Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts". At the "Bard College", they play at every annual festival, at ceremonies, convocations and other such events. They are also the resident group of "Collegiate Chorale" for whom they always perform at their charity concert series which are held within the main city. Other than performing in their native New York, the orchestra has also travelled around the country and has performed abroad as well. They have been around Asia and Europe. They have been with the "Jerusalem Foundation" for many years as well and support its cause in addition to playing for them.
The American Symphony Orchestra is not just simply a group that performs concerts and then dissolves. They are a fully fledged organization whose aim is to spread musical knowledge and preserve classical music. To achieve this goal, they have started education programs in various colleges around the city. This program that has especially been designed by them has won many awards for its credibility. It consists of music notes, and the study of symphonies as part of the social sciences and humanities. They have expanded to New Jersey as well and are now reaching out to high schools in these states.
