Yo-Yo Ma and Brian Stokes Mitchell To Lead Lincoln Center’s Virtual Broadcasts

On Sunday, May 3rd, Lincoln Center launched its Memorial For Us All virtual series, which honors those we’ve lost to COVID-19.

The first performance was led by Wynton Marsalis:

The next two performances will be led by cellist Yo-Yo Ma (May 10th) and singer Brian Stokes Mitchell (May 17th).

In the midst of this unprecedented pandemic, while many rituals we hold dear are no longer possible, Memorial For Us All offers unity, comfort, and healing through music, an art form intertwined with so many of our most beloved rituals around the world.

Anyone who has lost a loved one during the pandemic can submit their name to be honored at LincolnCenter.org/MemorialForUsAll. After the first performance, more than 300 people submitted names of loved ones lost. The individuals are honored during each Sunday broadcast.
