About Live From Lincoln Center

Live From Lincoln Center is a cornerstone of performing arts broadcasting, bringing the world’s greatest artists and performances in music, dance, and theater from Lincoln Center’s renowned stages to households across America on PBS. Since its premiere in 1976, Live From Lincoln Center has given hundreds of millions of people the chance to watch performances by legendary performers and ensembles, including the New York Philharmonic, Joshua Bell, Lang Lang, Yo-Yo Ma, Renée Fleming, and Audra McDonald. The pioneering broadcast series won two Emmys for the 2016 broadcast of Danny Elfman’s Music from the Films of Tim Burton. Celebrating the shift in American policy toward Cuba, Joshua Bell: Seasons of Cuba aired in December, featuring the violin superstar alongside the Chamber Orchestra of Havana in its U.S. debut, Dave Matthews, and other special guests, including the "Poet of Havana," Carlos Varela. The episode’s music director, David Lai, was nominated for a 2017 Emmy Award. In recent years, Live From Lincoln Center has expanded its reach even further through a host of in-cinema and digital presentations.
