To honor those we’ve lost to the pandemic, Lincoln Center will be hosting two events on Sunday, March 14, which marks one year since the city’s first reported COVID-19 death.
At 12pm, a video collaboration between Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts and the Young People’s Chorus of New York City will be presented. The children’s chorus performs Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “You’ll Never Walk Alone” outdoors on Lincoln Center’s campus, which can be viewed on Lincoln Center’s Facebook, YouTube, and website.
Then, beginning at 8pm, Lincoln Center will light hundreds of candles surrounding the Revson Fountain and dim surrounding campus lights, offering silence and honor for the approximately 30,000 New Yorkers lost thus far to the pandemic. This will last for approximately 30 minutes, and a ten minute moment of silence from the memorial will be broadcast live on Lincoln Center’s Facebook page. The memorial will be viewable from the street and the candles will remain lit overnight, though campus will remain closed to visitors.
