Alec Baldwin: Actor gives N.Y. Philharmonic $1 million
Question of the Day
NEW YORK (AP) — Just days after tying the knot with his yoga instructor, Alec Baldwin donated $1 million to the New York Philharmonic.
The gift is in honor of Zarin Mehta, outgoing president and executive director.
The “30 Rock” actor is a member of the orchestra’s board and hosts its radio show, “The New York Philharmonic This Week.”
He said in a statement Monday that Mr. Mehta made his dream of becoming part of the world of classical music come true.
Mr. Mehta’s 12-year tenure ends after the 2011-12 season.
The Philharmonic said the gift is a donation of proceeds Mr. Baldwin received from a Capital One advertising campaign.
Mr. Baldwin married Hilaria Thomas in Manhattan on Saturday.
