TAKEOVERS animate every corner of David Geffen HallAs part of Lincoln Center Presents, music, dance, theater, visual art, and more collide for a new kind of audience experience this winter—multi-genre festival takeovers at the new David Geffen Hall and Alice Tully Hall. In January, globalFEST celebrates the wonders of a world brimming with music that’s both innovative and deeply rooted. Soon after in February, AFROPUNK + LINCOLN CENTER Black HERstory Live brings the razor's edge in arts and culture, showcasing Black women artists from around the world, in an immersive multidisciplinary experience that pushes the boundaries of art in all its forms.
Collaborative ENCOUNTERS give way to bold new workOrganizations across Lincoln Center and partners throughout the city are teaming up to bring fresh artistry to the mainstage this season. Lincoln Center Presents and The Metropolitan Opera showcase the lesser-heard styles of opera legends Isabel Leonard, accompanied by Pablo Sainz-Villegas, and Will Liverman; and The Juilliard School and New York Philharmonic co-present the Chineke! Orchestra, Europe's first majority-Black and ethnically diverse orchestra. Spring programming culminates with the world premiere of Search for Spring, a large-scale choral work on climate justice, performed by community choirs from across NYC.
Today’s VISIONARIES and innovators take the spotlightExperience the changemakers of today and luminaries of tomorrow—center stage at premier venues. Poland’s Unsound Festival continues its decade-long relationship with Lincoln Center with the U.S. premiere of Weavings, a group improvisation project curated and conceived by Nicolás Jaar. In February, Bessie Award-winning dance icon Lil Buck takes the stage with Memphis Jookin, showing off the best of jookin, a blend of hip hop and modern that has grown to become one of the contemporary dance world’s most vibrant and vital movements.

Lincoln Center Moments
Dear New York,
I am honored to invite you to Lincoln Center Presents, a vision for year-round programming at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts that prioritizes an expansive view of artistic excellence and complements existing programs across the Lincoln Center campus and the civic life of the city at large. We are dedicated to making the arts available to the widest possible audience and the majority of programs are either FREE or Choose-What-You-Pay.
With the opening of the new David Geffen Hall this past October, we are reimagining the possibilities of a concert hall and what it means to be a public venue, for all New Yorkers. This season, you will see many collaborations and partnerships that create exciting collisions that go beyond genre and celebrate and reflect the intersectionalities and the vibrancy of the city itself. We are also championing new art forms that have traditionally not had much presence on our campus, changing perceptions of what, and more importantly, who, belongs in a concert hall.
As a lover of a variety of different art forms and a believer in the power of the arts, I knew I wanted to fill our campus with an incredible array of art that is in continual conversation with the moment and responsive to the needs of the community. Working closely with a multitude of artistic curators—including our two artists-in-residence, poet Mahogany L. Browne, and designer Mimi Lien—we are putting together events that are filled with a range of interdisciplinary works from diverse voices, that break down traditional silos and deepen artistic and civic connections.
Just as we encourage our artists to make themselves at home and become an intrinsic part of our community, we encourage the same of you, our audiences. Please join us as we break new ground and bring our constituents and partners across the city together in new ways. We look forward to welcoming you indoors, safely, and with your whole selves, to experience the power of the live performing arts.

EX VANDALS – San Juan Hill Project Mural
On view at the east side of Amsterdam Avenue and 62nd Street.
As part of Etienne Charles' work developing San Juan Hill: A New York Story, the composer commissioned a hand-painted mural that tells the story of the lost San Juan Hill neighborhood on the Upper West Side.
Painted over 7 days, with a team of 7 artists, the mural tells the story of the neighborhood’s evolution from the early 20th century to today. It shows the streets as they once were and features neighborhood fixtures such as the "Jungles Casino" jazz club where musicians met and played and where the world famous "Charleston" was developed.
The work incorporates portraits of iconic figures who once lived there, as well as several other significant artists, musicians, and community organizations whose names are written into the bricks. It progresses to depict the redevelopment that came about as a result of the Housing Act of 1949.
The EX VANDALS – San Juan Hill Project Mural was originally hand-painted in Brooklyn on Atlantic Avenue before this reproduction made its way to the Lincoln Center campus.
