NYC’s Lincoln Center Launches #ConcertsForKids With Free Online Performances & More
With growing uncertainty as to when these days of quarantine and social distancing will end, many of us are faced with the challenge of keeping our children busy, engaged, and continuing to learn outside of the classroom. Various online resources are popping up across the internet to aid parents in this unprecedented age of virtual schooling, and Lincoln Center is the latest organization to hop on board.
The renowned performing arts center recently launched #ConcertsForKids, offering free online concerts and educational material for children, enabling “families and communities to keep the performing arts front and center” during this global crisis.
The Lincoln Center at home initiative is here to aid overwhelmed parents across the globe with incredible prerecorded music and theater performances from a wide range of artists that can be enjoyed from home. The initiative began on April 5 and will run weekly performances at 11 am EST.
Your kids can also enjoy additional events like workshops, live ballet instruction, storytelling, musical sessions, and weekly lunchtime playlists to “enjoy world-class chamber music performances shared from the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center’s archives”. Other offerings include Principal Dancer at New York City Ballet Tiler Peck helping you perfect your plié through live ballet classes on her Instagram and a Musical Acoustic Workshop, encouraging children to explore the acoustics of different spaces around your home by experimenting with sound.
For adults, Lincoln Center also offers a selection of free programs on their website. From hour-long lunchtime performances from The Julliard School to an all-Beethoven quartet performance, you can find hours of soothing content to help keep your mind at ease.
