No one did more to define the American musical today than Harold “Hal” Prince. His resume included some of the most important titles of the past century: West Side Story, Fiddler on the Roof, Cabaret, Company, Sweeney Todd, and Phantom of the Opera. In the Company of Harold Prince will explore Prince’s reinvention of musical theatre from the script- and score-based model created by Rodgers and Hammerstein and George Abbott to a more visual, almost cinematic art form in which the director is auteur. Prince acknowledged that fruitful collaboration is the foundation of theatrical genius, and this exhibition will illuminate the team of designers, stage managers, press agents, composers, and writers Prince assembled to create so many history-making shows. In addition to displaying original costumes, set models, and archival video, this exhibition borrows from the aesthetic of immersive theatre and invites visitors to pick up, examine, and interact with reproductions of documents and objects from the Library’s unparallelled collections. Opening soon, September 18, 2019 - March 31st, 2020.

Bill has played worldwide with many jazz legends, including the Count Basie Countsmen, Wild Bill Davis, Bill Doggett, Jimmy McGriff, the Harlem Blues & Jazz Band, singers Gloria Lynne and Terri Thornton, as well as Paul Simon. Bill is a director of the Jazz Foundation of America. Jay Leonhart began his musical journey at the age of 7 on piano and percussions at the Peabody School of Music in Baltimore. At age 14, he chose the biggest instrument that he could find—the bass violin—and has since played with many of the major jazz musicians, big bands, pop singers, and jazz groups of this world. He has three times been voted the “Most Valuable Bassist in the Recording Industry.” Jay is known for his work with artists such as Jim Hall, Marian McPartland, Mel Torme, Maureen McGovern, Rosemary Clooney, Sting, and James Taylor, among others.

Vera Paints a Scarf celebrates the work of artist Vera Neumann (1907-1993) and her contributions to the field of American design. Neumann was among the most successful female design entrepreneurs of the 20th century, and an originator of the American lifestyle brand. Over the course of her career, which spanned from her label’s debut in 1942 to her death in 1993, Neumann produced an iconic line of women's scarves all signed with a cursive “Vera” and stamped with a ladybug, as well as thousands of textile patterns based on her drawings, paintings, and collages. This exhibition will be the first to comprehensively examine her career—and highlights the keys to her success: her joyful and inventive aesthetic, democratic design ethos, fusion of craft and mass production, and clever marketing.

The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center was launched a decade after the creation of Lincoln Center, on September 11, 1969, which happened to be on the birthday of the Chair of CMS’s board: Alice Tully. With its creation, the art of chamber music took its rightful place among orchestral music, opera, theater, dance, education, and the literary arts on the Lincoln Center campus. Composed initially of a distinguished roster of expert chamber artists, augmented by numerous guests from around the world, the Chamber Music Society quickly reached the highest level of critical acclaim and public popularity. While chamber music had been performed for years in other New York City venues, Lincoln Center’s new constituent institutionalized chamber music in a concert hall all its own, and embraced a long-term mission to ensure the wide-spread vitality of the art form. Since then, CMS has grown and thrived, and is now the largest global chamber music organization. More than 130 world-renowned musicians from 19 countries perform with CMS every season in New York and tour across four continents, presenting a comprehensive array of chamber music covering some 400 years, from the Baroque era to today. In addition, its wide variety of education programs and media activity reach an annually growing audience of enthusiastic listeners. This exhibition highlights the rich and diverse work of the organization.

Jazz at Lincoln Center

Sesame Street comes to Jazz at Lincoln Center for a swinging celebration of the show’s 50th anniversary. See some of your favorite feathered and furry friends like Big Bird and Elmo sing classic Sesame Street songs alongside the world-renowned Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis. It’s hard to imagine Sesame Street without music. The iconic show has featured many unforgettable tunes performed by real jazz musicians like trumpeter Kenny Rampton, a longtime member of both the JLCO and the Sesame Street band. Many of the jazz greats have visited Sesame Street over the past 50 years. It’s where countless children were introduced to legends like Dizzy Gillespie, Herbie Hancock, and Mary Lou Williams. Even our own Wynton Marsalis visited Sesame Street a few times, where he played “Take the A Train” with the Duck Ellington Orchestra and joined Hoots the Owl on “No Matter What Your Language (Our Music Can Be The Same).” Likewise, the JLCO has reimagined Sesame Street favorites into big band bonanzas, and this celebration will feature brand-new arrangements of Sesame Street gems. No one is too young or too old to enjoy this playful, intelligent, and joyful music– so come on down to our home, the House of Swing, and help us celebrate 50 years of our wonderful neighbors from Sesame Street. Proudly presented in collaboration with Sesame Workshop.

Sesame Street Muppets: Elmo, Abby, Big Bird, Grover, Oscar the Grouch, Rosita, Bert & Ernie, The Count, Herry Monster, Hoots the Owl.
