Live From Lincoln Center

Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts

For ten years the American public has been able to see, by means of television, hundreds of live productions from the stages of Lincoln Center. Through these programs millions of viewers have been exposed to the finest of the performing arts, some for the first time, with most viewing performances they would never have been able to see in person. The Lincoln Center series has concentrated on American performers and performances, and, in so doing, has set an example emulated by an increasing number of performing arts institutions. For an undertaking which has reached hundreds of millions with quality programming and which has been a credit both the the institution it represents and to broadcasting in general, a Peabody Award to the Lincoln Center for The Performing Arts for Live From Lincoln Center.
