Sunday, March 14 marked one year since the first person in NYC died of COVID-19. At Lincoln Center, hundreds of candles surrounding Revson Fountain were lit up as a memorial to those we’ve lost to the pandemic.
The candles remained lit, with surrounding campus lights dimmed, for about 30 minutes, which included a 10 minute moment of silence.
In addition, Lincoln Center partnered with the Young People’s Chorus of New York City for a memorial performance of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “You’ll Never Walk Alone” in honor of those lost.
As part of “A COVID Day of Remembrance,” portraits of those who’ve passed were projected onto the Brooklyn Bridge, and there were musical performances by the New York Philharmonic, Bishop Hezekiah Walker and The Love Fellowship Choir.
