President Dwight D. Eisenhower broke ground for the building of the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts back in May of 1959. It is now located in the Upper West Side of Manhattan between West 62nd and 65th Streets and Columbus and Amsterdam Avenues.
There are three roles of the Lincoln Center: 1) the leading presenter in the world of superb artistic programming, 2) the leader in the nation in arts, education and community relations, and 3) the manager of the Lincoln Center campus. It is also in the process of leading a series of major capital projects that are now almost finished on the behalf of the resident organizations on campus.
Around 5,000 programs, events and initiatives are presented each year by the Lincoln Center. These include American Songbook, Great Performers, Lincoln Center Out of Doors, Midsummer Night Swing, Mostly Mozart Festival and Live from Lincoln Center, which is the only series of live performing arts in the country.
