This week Afternoon on Three brings you the best seat in the house at the Avery Fisher Hall in the Lincoln Center, New York, with a week of concerts from the New York Philharmonic.

Founded in 1842 , the New York Philharmonic is the oldest symphony orchestra in the United States, and one of the oldest in the world. It currently plays some 180 concerts a year, and on May 5, 2010, gave its 15,000th concert - a milestone unmatched by any other symphony orchestra in the world.
