Lincoln Center has canceled all 2020 Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts programming, including Midsummer Night Swing, the Mostly Mozart Festival, and Lincoln Center Out of Doors. It is their intention, when it is safe again to gather in person, to stage a free, pop-up festival in a celebration of our great city and the selfless first responders and healthcare workers who are giving so much during this crisis. Please check their Lincoln Center @ Home Programming. (Announced April 10, 2020)
