Both Warren and Stevens were accompanied by the New York Philharmonic, 
conducted by Bernstein. The Hallelujah Chorus was sung by the Juilliard 
chorus; the Philharmonic also performed the Egmont Overture and 
Copland's Fanfare for the Common Man.

The actual groundbreaking was for Philharmonic Hall. Sadly, neither 
Warren nor Stevens ever performed in the new Opera House.
