Mary Chapin Carpenter will perform at the New York Philharmonic for the first time in a retrospective program featuring songs from her career. The shows will take place February 28 and March 1 at Lincoln Center’s Fisher Hall. Joan Baez, Shawn Colvin, Jerry Douglas, Tift Merritt and Aoife O’Donovan will join her. The performance will include selections from her debut orchestral album, Songs from the Movie, which was arranged and conducted by Vince Mendoza. The album will be released January 14.

“Working with Vince Mendoza was incredibly inspiring,” she said. “His arrangements gave these existing songs new meanings, new colors, new feelings, new destinations. To hear them played by the world class orchestra assembled at Air Studios was beyond any artistic experience that I could have imagined.”

Vince Mendoza will also make his Philharmonic debut, conducting the program. Some of Carpenter’s collaborators and musicians Peter Erskine, Matt Rollings, Duke Levine, John Jennings, Jon Carroll and Vinnie Santoro will also be featured in the program.
