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, we are reimagining the possibilities of a concert hall and what it means to be a public venue, for all New Yorkers. The opening piece we've commissioned for the New York Philharmonic, San Juan Hill: A New York Story, by composer Etienne Charles, is our land acknowledgement to those who came before us—combining the past with the present and laying the foundation for the future.
You will see many more 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.

Works & Process at Lincoln Center
Described by The New York Times as “an exceptional opportunity to understand something of the creative process,” Works & Process is where New Yorkers have been able to see, hear, and meet the most acclaimed artists in the world.
Focusing on studio-to-stage artistic process and longitudinal relationships with both artists and arts institutions, Works & Process provides artists iterative opportunities. Through our 10 residency partners that make up LaunchPAD “Process as Destination” and presentations at the Guggenheim Museum, Lincoln Center, and New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, Jerome Robbins Dance Division, artists hone and develop their craft and audiences gain unprecedented access to leading creators and performers. The program champions new works, shapes representation, and amplifies underrepresented voices and performing arts cultures.
Since 2020, Lincoln Center and Works & Process have partnered through virtual premieres and dynamic in-person performances. This fall, three new dance and music productions take the stage at the Clark Studio Theater—all offering Choose-What-You-Pay tickets going on sale to the general public on September 20 at noon.
