Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center

French chamber music almost completely disappeared after the Baroque era, and it was Camille Saint-Saëns who forged the path for his countrymen in the mid-19th century. His beguiling, elegant, and quintessentially French First Piano Trio no doubt inspired his countrymen to follow suit, as you will hear in the classics by both Ravel and Fauré. Program: - Saint-Saëns Trio No. 1 in F major for Piano, Violin, and Cello, Op. 18 (1864) - Ravel Sonata for Violin and Cello (1920-22) - Fauré Quartet No. 1 in C minor for Piano, Violin, Viola, and Cello, Op. 15 (1876-79)

For the first time in history, more people live in cities than in rural areas. By 2050, another 2 billion people will occupancy our planet, with two-thirds of them living in cities. While we have reached unprecedented population growth, our planet is under siege and many of our cities, including our own, are ill-prepared for the coming storm. From climate change, infrastructure, housing, health care and transportation, cities will face historic challenges to meet the demands of the 21st century. How do cities meet these challenges and thrive in the face of them? In FutureCity, Jason takes the audience through the history of cities, and explores contemporary issues that are key to their survival and success. For New York, this requires a further embrace of Jane Jacobs, while moving on from the cen-centric policies of Robert Moses. Jason Haber is a serial and social entrepreneur. His extensive career has intersected the worlds of real estate, politics, academia and publishing. He is currently an elected official in the Democratic party, where he serves a District Leader and as a member of the State Committee. Presider: Larry Hurst.

Museum of Art and Design

Born and raised in Detroit, educated and discovered in New York, Anna Sui reinvented pop culture fashion with her signature rock-and-roll romantic label in the 1990s and has remained a design icon ever since. Beginning with her premiere catwalk show in 1991, Sui has shaped not only the garments, textiles, accessories, cosmetics, and interiors that comprise her design universe, but also the course of fashion history by popularizing the boutique fashion look. Sui’s unique approach to creating narratives through her work is legendary: a self-taught historian of culture, art, and fashion, she samples music, books, exhibitions, movies, time periods, photography, and art movements in her designs. The first iteration of this exhibition debuted at the Fashion and Textile Museum, London, in the summer of 2017. The exhibition is also made possible by a grant from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.

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.

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.

Join Burnt Sugar The Arkestra Chamber for the U.S. premiere of Porgy & Bess The AstroBlack Trapfish Row Variations–their “caramelization” of Gershwin’s gully but melancholic masterpiece. Founded by Village Voice icon Greg Tate and co-led with Dayton, Ohio monster bassist Jared Michael Nickerson since 1999, Burnt Sugar The Arkestra Chamber is a sprawling band of musicians whose prodigious personnel allows them to freely juggle a wide swath of the experimental soul-jazz-hip hop spectrum. Rolling Stone calls them “a multiracial jam army that freestyles with cool telekinesis between the lustrous menace of Miles Davis’s On the Corner, the slash-and-om of 1970s King Crimson, and Jimi Hendrix’s moonwalk across side three of Electric Ladyland.”
