Lincoln Center Screenings



Lincoln Center Local: Free Screenings, a program created by Lincoln Center Education and hosted by libraries and community centers, brings the best of Lincoln Center—world-renowned performances coupled with unparalleled educational resources—off its Manhattan-based campus and into communities anywhere. This Lincoln Center program provides high-definition screenings from the growing digital catalog of the world’s leading performing arts center. These music, dance, theater and opera performances come from recent live events at Lincoln Center, including the New York Philharmonic, Lincoln Center Theater, the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, and School of American Ballet, as well as past performances at Lincoln Center Out of Doors, Midsummer Night Swing, American Song, and past broadcasts from the Emmy Award-winning PBS series Live From Lincoln Center.

With loads of laughs and ingenious storytelling, this cheeky troupe from Chicago brings our country’s epic origin story to life using their bodies, voices, and (pantomimed) cannons. Seven actors recreate the entire American fight for independence-all in just 50 minutes.

December 7 Simple Gifts: The Chamber Music Society at Shaker Village

The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center takes to the road, performing in one of the country’s most beautiful historic sites: Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill in Kentucky. Delivering a monumental performance of Copland’s “Appalachian Spring,” the ensemble draws poignant connections between life on the frontier, the art of making music, and the quest for transcendence in American life.
