It’s been almost seven months since New Yorkers could experience a concert at Lincoln Center, but luckily the wait is now over!
Of course, it’s going to look a bit different than it used to.
Instead of catching the opera or New York Philharmonic in the famous venue’s towering halls, New Yorkers can now experience live music outdoors on Lincoln Center’s iconic campus. Enjoy performances both from the top of the signature sloped Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Lawn and under the trees in Barclays Capital Grove.
The series is called “New Stages,” and it “presents a new series of live music performances, featuring a diverse range of artistic styles—from chamber music and jazz to Caribbean and Bollywood inspired melodies, performed by artists from across the campus and New York City. Lincoln Center New Stages reimagines the performance space and finds new ways to foster connections while our halls remain closed.”
The first performance was this past weekend (you can see enchanting photos of the band playing from the stage on the water if you scroll through below!), and it will continue this coming weekend with Latin GRAMMY-winner Linda Briceño, better known as Ella Bric.
Audience members will be spaced out on socially distant “lawn pods” (aka, circles drawn on the ground as done in Domino Park), and they each cost $25. They can fit two people (the ticket holder and a guest).
All pods are general admission, first come first served, and no pods will be sold at the door. You can find out more on their website here.
