THE LINCOLN CENTER YOUNG PATRONS CELEBRATE ANNUAL GALA AT ONE OF BROOKLYN’S ARCHITECTURAL TREASURES, THE WEYLIN
The Lincoln Center Young Patrons relived the Roaring ’20s with a two-tiered gala inside one of Brooklyn’s architectural treasures: the Weylin. For one night only, what people knew as the historic Williamsburg Savings Bank was 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.
Among some of the notable guests included: 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.
Special support for the Lincoln Center Young Patrons Gala is provided by Lita Tandon and The Tandon Family. Additional support for the Lincoln Center Young Patrons Gala is provided by Jennie L. and Richard K. DeScherer and Hearst.
