Fine arts centers face the music
By Frederick M. Winship for UPI

NEW YORK, June 5 (UPI) -- Announcement of the New York Philharmonic's plans to abandon Lincoln Center and return to its old home at Carnegie Hall is the latest fall-out of the weak economy's effect on the performing arts.

The Philharmonic, the nation's oldest symphony orchestra, was the first component of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, moving there from Carnegie Hall in 1962. The center has since grown to become America's largest performing arts center with 11 components including opera, theater, ballet, classical music, and jazz.

But time has not been kind to Lincoln Center and other arts centers, such as Washington's Kennedy Center. As they near middle age, they need facelifts and even more serious renovations than they cannot afford in the face of numerous problems including declining ticket sales, particularly for symphonic concerts. Lincoln Center's $1.5 billion renovation plan has been scaled down to a $350 million plan.

Lincoln Center chief envisions concert hall’s future without the New York Philharmonic
With the New York Philharmonic leaving Lincoln Center after more than four decades, and another high-profile tenant considering a move, the world’s largest arts complex is dwelling not on its losses but on the possibilities. From Associated Press.

Since the Philharmonic’s unexpected announcement Monday that it will move from Avery Fisher Hall to Carnegie Hall in three years, Lincoln Center President Reynold Levy is mulling new uses sweeping and small, including hosting the world’s top orchestras, staging festivals, introducing interactive technology to audiences and emphasizing youth education programs.

The hall “is now a blank canvas, and we have a palette of musical colors that we’re going to paint on that canvas,” Levy said in an interview with The Associated Press.

Costs and Approach Disputed in Lincoln Center Redevelopment

ROBIN POGREBIN
NY Times

In resigning last week as chairman of the Lincoln Center redevelopment effort, the construction executive Peter M. Lehrer said in a letter: "How this project has been managed, along with its lack of openness and divisive management style, has undermined the ability for it to proceed in a timely, responsible and cost-efficient manner. Control and oversight as to how money is spent are woefully inadequate." <a href=http://www.nytimes.com/2003/06/19/arts/music/19LINC.html target=_blank>more</a>
