Two Free Virtual Series at Lincoln Center this November

Two free series at Lincoln Center are making special virtual debuts this month, bringing new content to enjoy from home as the weather gets colder.

Earlier this year the New York Philharmonic launched Project 19, the initiative commissioning new works by 19 women composers, to commemorate the centennial of woman’s suffrage. With many Project 19 premieres postponed due to COVID-19 cancellations, the New York Philharmonic is bringing the suffrage celebration online with five events from Monday, November 9–Thursday, November 12, culminating with the broadcast of three orchestral works premiered by Jaap van Zweden and the Orchestra. This series excerpt is an immersive exploration of the rising chorus of women’s voices—all for free! Click here to check out the scheduled performances (and special talk) to air online.

Works & Process at the Guggenheim and Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts are also presenting four newly-commissioned video performances created during Works & Process bubble residencies at Kaatsbaan Cultural Park in rural Hudson Valley and filmed on the Lincoln Center campus. Spanning music and dance genres from Afrik to ballroom to street dance and more, these performances work to amplify underrepresented voices, performing arts cultures, and producers while featuring artists-driven projects. These digital performances will premier Sundays in November at 7:30pm through November 22—the first of which premiered Sunday, November 1 can be viewed online.
