This is your place to BE this summer

CELEBRATE new commissions for the first time

In July and August, the Festival Orchestra of Lincoln Center performs the North American premiere of Huang Ruo’s City of Floating Sounds, an interactive work that fuses music and technology with a mobile app-enabled soundscape and live performance, and a world premiere by Hannah Kendall, inspired by scripture from Job:27 and Schumann’s Symphony No. 2. Through August 9, experience the next generation of experimental canon with this summer's category-defying Living Music Underground series, curated by Nadia Sirota.

PARTICIPATE at the intersection of arts and civic engagement

Join us for our Civic Saturdays performance series, designed to unite friends and strangers in the spirit of shared community, including the Civic Speakeasy hosted by poet-in-residence Mahogany L. Browne. In August, our longtime partner, Voices of a People's History, hosts The People Speak—and Sing!, a performance of songs and readings that speak to the themes of liberty and the pursuit of happiness. On August 10, pop culture meets activism with the Ruidosa Fest, the Latine-led international feminist platform, with a full day of lectures, live music, and a late-night silent disco.

SING and DANCE with the return of long-time favorites

NYC's largest outdoor dance floor with a now-iconic 10-foot disco ball shines bright as the centerpiece of Summer for the City with FREE social dance nights and silent discos every week. Free family shows for all ages, including storytimes, kid-friendly concerts, and dance workshops are offered all summer long. Jazz at Lincoln Center returns with Jazz Underground, featuring a selection of rising star instrumentalists and vocalists that delight audiences at the underground pop-up bar and performance stage. Plus, much-loved performances—globalFEST, BAAND TogetherDeaf Broadway, and so much more—come back for an encore!
