LINCOLN CENTER SIGNS MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING TO PROVIDE COMPREHENSIVE CONSULTING SERVICES TO TIANJIN, CHINA’S FIFTH LARGEST CITY

Lincoln Center has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Tianjin Innovative Finance Investment Company (TIFI) to provide a broad range of consulting services in connection with building a world-class performing arts complex in Yujiapu, the financial center in the Binhai New Area of Tianjin, a central government designated economic zone.  The announcement of the MOU outlining a strategic framework for providing these services was made today at Lincoln Center by Katherine Farley, Chair of Lincoln Center, and Reynold Levy, President of Lincoln Center.

Yujiapu, located 45 minutes from downtown Tianjin and 2 ½ hours by car/45 minutes by a new bullet train from China’s capital city, Beijing, is the financial center of the huge greenfield development of Binhai which is approximately ten times the size of Manhattan. With metropolitan Tianjin’s population of 12 million, and Beijing’s of 20 million, Yujiapu is within easy commuting reach of some 32 million residents. Designated a national central city, Tianjin is in the midst of a dramatic expansion, anchored by the Yujiapu area whose cultural centerpiece will be a major performing arts complex scheduled to open around 2015.

This agreement marks the first time Lincoln Center will be providing professional consulting services to a performing arts project. Drawing on unparalleled 50-year operational and global artistic expertise, as well as extensive experience in building acclaimed, high-profile new performing arts facilities on its 16-acre campus, Lincoln Center will collaborate with TIFI in the planning and construction of brand new performing arts facilities. Subject to completing a binding agreement, Lincoln Center will recommend the content of artistic programming, propose an economic model for the performing arts center’s operations, establish a design and construction process, and provide staff training, all in close cooperation with TIFI.

Commented Lincoln Center Chair Katherine Farley, “This MOU is an important first step in Lincoln Center’s relationship to TIFI and the city of Tianjin. We look forward to providing assistance to TIFI as it plans, builds and trains its executives to operate this exciting new performing arts center.”

Added Reynold Levy, President of Lincoln Center, “China has identified the importance of arts and culture as a national priority, and, as a result, plans are underway to build an unprecedented number of performing arts centers.  Having nearly completed an award-winning $1.2 billion physical redevelopment of Lincoln Center, we’re delighted with the opportunity to use our knowledge and expertise to assist in the creation of world-class facilities and programs and in promoting increased exchanges between Chinese artists and organizations and their American counterparts.”

Lincoln Center is the world’s leading performing arts center.  Located in the heart of New York City on a 16-acre campus, it houses 12 prestigious cultural organizations including Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.  The other 11 are The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, The Film Society of Lincoln Center, Jazz at Lincoln Center, The Juilliard School, Lincoln Center Theater, The Metropolitan Opera, New York City Ballet, New York City Opera, New York Philharmonic, The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, and School of American Ballet.

Lillias White, Karen Ziemba

Who/What/When:
Jazz at Lincoln Center announces the 2011 Jazz & Popular Song series, directed by singer and pianist Michael Feinstein and sponsored by HSBC.  The series presents three programs and one family matinee that celebrate the intersection of American popular song and jazz. 

Each will include Tedd Firth as musical director and on piano; Scott Siegel is supervising producer.  Feinstein will introduce each concert; he will host and perform during Sweet and Low Down: How Popular Standards Became Jazz Classics, June 7-8 and on the family concert, June 5.

All concerts, except for the family concert (3pm), begin at 7:30pm with two 45-minute acts and one intermission. 

  • I Got it Bad: A New Duke Ellington Revue
    Tuesday-Wednesday, May 3-4, 7:30pm
    The Allen Room
    The first in this series, this concert explores the territory where jazz and American popular music came together and flourished in the masterful compositions of Duke Ellington. Creating a brand new revue of Ellington’s work and paying special attention  to the brilliant vocals this gifted composer wrote, the show will showcase songs such as “Don’t Get Around Much Anymore,” “Do Nothing ‘Til You Hear From Me,” “I Got It Bad and That Ain’t Good,” “Satin Doll,” and more.  Featured artists include Montego Glover (Memphis, The Color Purple), Darius de Haas (Rent, Kiss of the Spiderwoman), and Lillias White (Fela, Chicago, The Life).  The concert will be introduced by Michael Feinstein.
  • More Than a Song: The Music That Integrated America
    Tuesday-Wednesday, May 17-18, 7:30pm
    The Allen Room
    This concert journeys through the important transition in popular music when white composers like Irving Berlin and George Gershwin brought jazz to Broadway, often introducing African American jazz performers and composers like Fats Waller and Eubie Blake to the American mainstream for the first time. Introduced by Michael Feinstein and featuring Quentin Earl Darrington (Ragtime [2009 Revival]), Allan Harris, Christiane Noll (Jekyll & Hyde), and Karen Ziemba (Contact, Curtains) this unique concert illustrates the role of Broadway as the social engine that created an alliance society could embrace in song if not yet in real life, and will showcase classic songs such as “The Birth of the Blues,” “Ol’ Man River,” and “Harlem on My Mind,” among others.
  • Jazz & Popular Song Family Concert
    I Got Rhythm: The Common Roots of Popular Song and Jazz

    Sunday, June 5, 3pm
    The Allen Room
    Singer and scholar Michael Feinstein hosts and presents a family matinee exploring the common roots of 20th century songwriting giants from Duke Ellington to George Gershwin, and many others.  Joining him will be singer Leslie Uggams and singer, songwriter, and saxophonist Curtis Stigers.
    (Seating is general admission).
  • Sweet and Low Down: How Popular Standards Became Jazz Classics
    Tuesday-Wednesday, June 7-8, 7:30pm
    The Allen Room
    American popular song and jazz are not only interrelated, but are actually two sides of the same coin. In this special concert, starring Michael Feinstein and his handpicked guests including Leslie Uggams and Curtis Stigers, among others, the unique relationship and common roots between these seemingly unrelated musical worlds will be revealed. This show will present classic songs from two viewpoints: as they were originally conceived for Broadway, Hollywood, and Tin Pan Alley, and then as they were re-invented by jazz performers to become classics in the jazz repertoire. Songs will include “How High the Moon,” “Body and Soul,” and “I Got Rhythm,” to name a few.  Special appearances by Wynton Marsalis (June 7 only) and Barbara Carroll (June 8 only).
