Harvey Lichtenstein Set for CHANGING BROOKLYN: THE IMPACT OF BAM Talk at the Segal Theatre, 11/4
Next Monday, November 4 at 6:30pm: Changing Brooklyn: The Impact of BAM, An Evening with Harvey Lichtenstein.
Join us for conversation with Harvey Lichtenstein, the internationally recognized driving force behind the Brooklyn Academy Of Music, and a leader of New York culture for more than 50 years.
Beginning with early positions at New York City Ballet and New York City Opera, Lichtenstein returned to his native Brooklyn in 1967 to begin his tenure at the Brooklyn Academy Of Music, setting a new course for the institution, which has since grown to become one of the most respected arts venues in the world. Lichtenstein's cultivation of such talents as Merce Cunningham, Robert Wilson, Laurie Anderson, Twyla Tharp, and Philip Glass, has helped cement BAM and Brooklyn's status as an indispensable laboratory for the arts.
The evening will also feature rarely seen historical performance footage from the BAM archives.
This event is part of the GC Public Program's initiative "Cultural Capital: The Promise and Price of New York Creative Economy." CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO
