Lincoln Center has announced additional programming for their winter and spring lineup of performances for the 2022-23 season.

First up is a presentation of Terrance McKnight’s “Langston & Beethoven: Black & Proud,” which celebrates the famous poet’s birthday with a number of works by Beethoven, David Baker, and George Gershwin, set to Hughes’ poems. This collaboration with the New York Philharmonic will feature select members of the orchestra, joined by guest piano soloist Kyle Walker and tenor Chauncey Packer.

Performance Dates: Feb. 1, 2023

Baritone Will Liverman will perform selections from his Grammy-nominated album “Dreams of a New Day,” which showcases the work of renowned Black composers. Presented in collaboration with The Metropolitan Opera, Liverman is set to return this season after starring in last year’s opening production of “Fire Shut Up In My Bones.”

Performance Dates: Feb. 15, 2023

Among the events will also be the world premiere of “Search for Spring,” a large-scale choral work dealing with climate justice by composer Jonathan Dove and librettist Alasdair Middleton. Amateur singers are encouraged to apply in January for the May performance, which will take place on LC’s Josie Robertson Plaza.

Performance Dates: May 2023
