General Support

Give where it’s needed most. We appreciate your donation toward general operating support, which not only supports all of our performance series and outreach programs—but also helps us manage our 16-acre campus in the heart of NYC. Thank you for trusting us to distribute your gift to the most essential areas at exactly the right time.

Lincoln Center Education

Lincoln Center Education (LCE) is the educational cornerstone of Lincoln Center with a presence in 220 New York public schools. LCE enriches the lives of students, educators, and lifelong learners through opportunities for engagement with the highest-quality arts on the stage, in the classroom, online, and in the community. It offers unparalleled school and community partnerships, professional development workshops, consulting services, and its own repertory. Spanning four decades, LCE’s work has reached more than 20 million students, educators, administrators, parents, community members, teaching artists, and artists within and beyond NYC.

Mostly Mozart Festival

America’s first indoor summer music festival, Mostly Mozart Festival has been a New York tradition and a tribute to the genius of Mozart and his contemporaries for 50 years—a milestone anniversary that was commemorated in 2016. Culminating in our most enriching and well-attended season to date, Renée and Robert Belfer Music Director Louis Langrée and Ehrenkranz Artistic Director Jane Moss continually produce seasons worthy of the festival’s rich heritage and its beloved namesake.

Midsummer Night Swing

For over a quarter of a century, New York’s most popular social dance party has attracted over 80,000 people annually to dance under the stars in Damrosch Park during Midsummer Night Swing. All ages and experience levels get moving to an exhilarating mix of international musical artists.

Out of Doors

Scores of music, dance, spoken word, and family events—including premieres, debuts, and annual programs—make up the country’s longest-running completely free outdoor festival. Out of Doors has been filling the plazas of Lincoln Center since 1974. It draws annual audiences of 150,000 to high-caliber performances of music, dance, and theater—all free of charge.

Great Performers

Since 1965, the beloved Great Performers series has presented a season of premier artists in compelling performances of both classical masterworks and contemporary repertoire. Programs include the finest orchestras and conductors, virtuoso musicians, and special film series.

White Light Festival

The White Light Festival presents cutting-edge productions that explore the transcendent power of the arts. Each fall, it offers a broad spectrum of the world’s leading vocalists, instrumentalists, ensembles, choreographers, and directors—complemented by conversations with artists and scholars, as well as White Light Lounges.

American Songbook

Showcasing our country’s greatest pop singers and songwriters in the spectacular Appel Room, the intimate Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse, and the dynamic David Rubenstein Atrium, American Songbook ranges in style from country to rock, bluegrass to jazz, and hip-hop to Broadway.

Family Programming

LC Kids connects parents with the performances, events, and activities that are perfect for their children’s interests and ages. Not only offering an enriching membership program for families, LC Kids hosts free campus-wide programs several times each year, like our popular Spring Fling and the Halloween Trick-or-Treat. There are also monthly events like Storytime at the Atrium.

Support also goes toward Lincoln Center Education programs that bring families together and introduce young people to the magic of music, theater, opera, dance, and visual art.


Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts is committed to providing access to the greatest achievements in the performing arts for guests with disabilities through exceptional guest care, physical and programmatic accommodations, and leadership in accessibility and inclusion.
