The Fall weekends are always filled with activities for New Yorkers on staycations and those visiting New York City on vacations.

Check out what's going on in NYC this weekend, and take your pick from all of the fantastic options.

Yuja Wang, Piano - Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage, Carnegie Hall
May 17, 2018 - New York City

Gifted with mind-boggling technical skill, penetrating interpretive insight, and enough charisma to light a city, Yuja Wang is a megastar pianist. As the Los Angeles Times wrote, "She eats the world's greatest keyboard challenges for breakfast with one hand tied behind her back."

The MET Orchestra - Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage, Carnegie Hall
May 18, 2018 - New York City

With a seductive whisper of winds, horns, harp, and strings, Debussy's Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune ushered in a new world of music where the relationship of harmony, melody, rhythm, and orchestral color were beautifully blurred. There's nothing hazy, however, about the visceral struggle with fate that's the essence of Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 4, nor in the work's thrilling, life-affirming finale. There's more Russian music when mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili sings Mussorgsky's Songs and Dances of Death.

Evgeny Kissin, Piano - Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage, Carnegie Hall
May 20, 2018 - New York City

A poet at heart and a virtuoso of the highest order, Evgeny Kissin is one of the most magnificent pianists of any generation. A master in the grand Russian tradition, The New York Times has lauded his "blend of technical mastery and eloquent artistry" while The Telegraph has praised the "lovely limpid clarity" of his playing. Once a prodigy, now a living legend, Kissin's recitals cannot be missed.
