Nowhere in the article does it say why they canceled?? I have been going to this event for years and I'd like to know why the NY Philharmonic backed out.

i have a feeling that both the state and the county refused to pay their shares of the funding.maybe one of our esteemed pols can step up to the plate and find the $$.

i hope that they can get the philharmonic to reconsider.if not then the LI philharmonic will have to substitute.

Were you guys at the one last year? They made people bring in only one alcoholic beverage. And they wanted to take away my cork screw. Poor local family brought in a cooler full of drinks for 8 adults haha the security was so busy with them I snuck past with my bottle and my cork screw.

Why did we invite the NY Philharmonic in the first place and not support our local musicians?

We've enjoyed the Philharmonic for many many years and will miss listening to a world class orchestra.
Thanks for all your efforts!
