Black-tie Event to Feature Performances by Lea DeLaria (Orange is the New Black), Sugartone Brass Band, and DJs The Misshapes
Who: Lincoln Center President Debora L. Spar; comedian, actress, and jazz musician Lea DeLaria; Sugartone Brass Band, a New Orleans–style second-line brass band; DJs Leigh Lezark, Geordon Nicol of The Misshapes; New York City–based artist collective WAFFLE; pianist Isaiah Thompson; dancer and choreographer Preeti Vasudevan; and violinist Filip Pogady.
What: The Lincoln Center Young Patrons are summoning the Roaring ’20s with a two-tiered gala inside one of Brooklyn’s architectural treasures: the Weylin. For one night only, what you may know as the historic Williamsburg Savings Bank will be transformed, with a swank speakeasy downstairs and a music-fueled party overhead—all designed to transport guests back to the Jazz Age.
Lincoln Center Young Patrons connects culturally minded New Yorkers in their 20s and 30s who celebrate, support, and promote the world’s leading performing arts center: Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. Funds raised from the Young Patrons Gala support Lincoln Center’s arts education and audience development initiatives.
