On October 3, 2013, the American Symphony Orchestra opens its season at Carnegie Hall with New York Avant-Garde. The centennial year of the 1913 Armory Show is captured in music in this partnership with the New-York Historical Society's exhibition The Armory Show at 100: Modern Art and Revolution (opening on October 11).

As the Armory Show ushered in a new era in the history of American art and introduced the European avant-garde to American audiences, the 1913 event also jolted New York's music scene with the shock of the modern. While the influence of this time was not fully realized in American music until the early 1920s, the 1913 show helped catapult the early pioneers of American modern music.

The performance will be held at Carnegie Hall on October 3rd at 8 PM. Tickets are $25 / $35 / $50 and subscriptions are available at and by phone at 212-868-9276. Tickets are also available at, at the Carnegie box office, or by calling CarnegieCharge at 212-247-7800. The Conductor's Notes Q&A at 7pm in Stern Auditorium is free with concert ticket.
