Founded in 2005 by Gregory Singer, Manhattan Symphonie has been performing primarily in the New York tri-state area including but not limited to five concerts at Carnegie Hall Stern Auditorium, David Geffen Hall and Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center, Ethical Culture Center, Merkin Concert Hall, Barge Music, and the United Nations.
The orchestra’s main mission is for the humanitarian causes and performing for fundraisers for national and international disasters. The orchestra has also performed five concert tours of China, where Maestro Singer also taught master classes. Ironically, the orchestra’s 6th tour was cancelled one week before the departure date due to the pandemic.
The Manhattan Symphonie’s programming is versatile including popular music, movie soundtracks, Broadway show music, Bluegrass, contemporary premiering of compositions by young rising-star composers, ethnic music, works by maestro Gregory Singer as well as the great classical masterpieces.
Manhattan Symphonie recorded the soundtrack of the 2019 News & Documentary Emmy Award winning movie “God Knows Where I Am.”
Maestro Singer expresses that “Manhattan Symphonie and its performances have the rare power to bring people together. It proves that what we have in our common humanity is much more important than our differences. Our music heals and unifies the divisions between people.”
