There are just 100 free tickets for young people available for each Philharmonic Free Fridays concert, for tickets normally priced between $50 and $169.
Online reservations open at about noon on the Monday before each Philharmonic Free Fridays concert.
Tickets are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. It is one ticket per person, and the online sign-up closes when the 100 available tickets have been reserved.
Your reserved ticket can be picked up with a valid ID at the box office in David Geffen Hall on the day of the concert.
Pick up tickets between 5:30 and 7:30pm for concerts that begin at 8pm, or between 5:00 and 7:00pm for concerts that begin at 7:30 pm.
If you do not pick up your ticket at least 30 minutes before the start of the concert, the NY Philharmonic may release it.
