Nothing gets me more excited than a sophisticated evening at Lincoln Center. And more specifically, at the New York Philharmonic. This Tuesday, festivities were at an all time high for the ninth annual Lunar New Year Concert and Gala. Over 300 guests joined for the evening's concert, raising approximately $1 million for the Philharmonic, money that will fund a range of amazing projects, from the free Concerts in the Parks to education activities for local city students.
