Today, Henry Timms, President & CEO, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts is pleased to announce the launch of Lincoln Center at Home (#LincolnCenteratHome), a new initiative to help all of us maintain our vital connection to the arts and continue to bring joy into our lives.
In his newsletter, he writes – “As we join our colleagues around the world in taking our work online, we’ll be sharing unique content under the banner Lincoln Center Presents, including rarely seen video from decades of Live From Lincoln Center, more recent performances from across campus, and live streams from wherever performances are still happening – empty halls, living rooms, and more. At the heart of Lincoln Center at Home are two new initiatives for families (lifelong learners welcome):
Schools may be closed but arts education from Lincoln Center will be available every day at 10:00 a.m. ET. Our Pop-Up Classroom will bring free learning activities to engage the entire family using simple materials from around the house. Led by some of the world’s best artists, we’ll guide you through activities like making and interacting with expressive puppets, songwriting, weaving with recycled materials like junk mail. Join us each morning as part of your daily schedule.
Experience music royalty … wherever your family is. We will regularly post new and ‘homemade’ performances from Lincoln Center’s world-class musicians. Artists will be recording short performances that we’re excited to share with your family.
We are resolved not to lose sight of what connects us and we hope you will follow us on social media and continue to be part of our community from wherever you are.”
