On the next SundayArts: a profile of Jazz for Young People at Lincoln Center, a visit to Neue Galerie's Klimt exhibit, the latest news, and more.

This week at Lincoln Center, the second annual Coca-Cola Generations in Jazz Festival kicks off, featuring veterans and newcomers alike celebrating the rich tradition of Jazz at Lincoln Center.

A look at what's coming soon to Lincoln Center's intimate jazz venue.

Virtuoso saxophonist, composer, arranger and conductor Paquito D’Rivera is one of the most important figures in the history of Latin Jazz, one of two artists to ever win Grammy’s in both the classical and jazz categories. Rafael Pi Roman spoke with Paquito about his music and his life at the legendary Blue Note, in New [...]

Every December I am struck by the overwhelming list of concertgoing options in the city, as seemingly every choral ensemble and orchestra comes out of the woodwork with offerings ranging from Bach’s Christmas Oratorio and Handel’s Messiah to John Adams’s El Niño and Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel. Sting just finished his two winter-themed concerts up [...]

As if it weren’t enough doing eight Fionas a week in Shrek on Broadway, Sutton Foster has squeezed in two Monday evenings this month at Feinstein’s at the Regency.

The film retrospective opens on April 17 with a weeklong theatrical run of Arthur Penn’s Mickey One, and continues with fiction features, experimental [...]

It’s hard to find a more fitting act to open Lincoln Center’s annual Midnight Summer Swing series than Nellie McKay. Now, Lincoln Center isn’t new territory for McKay, who appeared in that institution’s Great American Songbook in March 2005, but the interesting development this time around is that she’ll be fronting a band called the [...]
