Lincoln Square Business Improvement District (LS BID) announced its expanded holiday program of pop-up performances to celebrate the neighborhood’s resiliency and culture comeback.
The holiday tree was lit up this past Monday. Every Wednesday, a special month-long series of shows will take place in the late afternoon or early evening in Dante Park.
The talent lineup includes Frank London and the Klezmer Brass Allstars; Mariachi Nuevo Mexico; internationally acclaimed tap dance artist, performer, choreographer, educator, and bandleader, Michela Marino Lerman; a specially commissioned and choreographed surrealist performance by Alice Farley Dance Theater; Kaufman Music Center’s Special Music School High School Choir; the New York Choy Loy Fut Lion Dance Team; and caroling with VocalSoul and the Fabulous Fezziwigs.
“The holidays for the Lincoln Square neighborhood this year are a way to celebrate our community comeback as more businesses open and reopen, and as more New Yorkers return to the cultural heart of our City,” said Monica Blum, President of the Lincoln Square BID.
Tumbling Brights, a choreographed lighting display, is also expanded by The Lincoln Square BID. This year instead of ten figures, there are now 15 lighted spirit figures illuminating the Broadway malls from Columbus Circle up to 70th Street.
