The New York Philharmonic is set to perform at Apple’s Fifth Avenue store to celebrate the launch of the tech giant’s new classical music streaming app. The event, scheduled for March 31, is already full and is expected to run for about 45 minutes.
According to Apple, the performance will feature Big Apple-inspired pieces, including selections from Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story, Steve Reich’s New York Counterpoint, and Duke Ellington’s Clarinet Lament. Attendees of the event will have a first look at the new Apple Music Classical app.
The app was created specifically for classical music lovers, offering a richer and more dedicated listening experience than the regular Apple Music app. With Apple Music Classical, users can enjoy high-quality recordings of classical and similar styles of music on their iOS devices with iOS 15.4 or later. The app is included in the price of an Apple Music subscription.
Apple has also released a new 30-second ad featuring classical pianist Alice Sara Ott and conductor Karina Canellakis to introduce the new app. The ad showcases an exclusive performance of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 1.

For the best listening experience, AppleInsider recommends using wired headphones. Wireless headphones like AirPods, AirPods Pro, and AirPods Max do not allow for maximum-quality recordings.
Apple Music Classical is now available on the App Store, and classical music enthusiasts can look forward to immersing themselves in their favorite genres with the help of this new app.
