To commemorate the Department of the Interior's recent designation of The Town Hall as a National Historic Landmark Site and to celebrate its newly elected President and CEO Michael Presser, The Trustees of The Town Hall Foundation honored the 92 year old New York City landmark by presenting this free concert event which showcased the vibrant New York City performing arts scene.

First opened to the public on January 12, 1921, in its 92 years The Town Hall has hosted many of our most celebrated artistic, political and public figures, including, German composer Richard Strauss (who performed there in February, 1921 just weeks after it opened), Eleanor Roosevelt (who spoke and appeared on numerous occasions), renowned singer Marian Anderson (who made her New York debut at The Town Hall in 1924), jazz musicians Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker (who played together at a concert in June, 1945), and more recently President Barack Obama, Woody Allen, John Grisham, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Billy Joel, Liza Minnelli, Bruce Springsteen and Whitney Houston (who performed for the very first time at age 14 at The Town Hall).
