Specializing In Spreading His Wings

image

Allan Kozinn, wrote in today’s New York Times: “Winning the Chopin Competition early in his career did not stop the pianist Garrick Ohlsson from insisting on musical challenges from styles and periods outside his specialty...At the moment Mr. Ohlsson has Liszt on his mind, mainly because this season includes the bicentenary of Liszt’s birth, though he has been known to mine the Liszt catalog in nonanniversary years too. In the 1998-99 season he played a three-concert series at Lincoln Center juxtaposing Liszt with Beethoven, Bach and Schubert. In one installment he undertook the draining feat of pairing Liszt’s monumental B minor Sonata with Bach’s “Goldberg” Variations. He revisits the sonata next Sunday as part of a Liszt recital at the 92nd Street Y...”

    Welcome To 92nd Street Y’s New Fall Season

    image
    Sol Adler, Executive Director, 92nd Street Y

    Welcome to 92nd Street Y’s new fall season.

    As always, this time of year generates excitement and anticipation. This fall, we are especially energized by 92nd Street Y’s new look, designed to take us into the future and communicate to people around the world what you already know: that 92Y is “An Open Door to Extraordinary Worlds.” Today, we also have wide open “virtual doors” so that people can experience 92Y wherever they are, whether it’s through our new website or our blog, on Facebook or Twitter, or on YouTube, iTunesU, Fora.tv or Amazon.

    Our mission, of course, remains the same: to enrich lives, create community and elevate humanity, all through the lens of our Jewish values, such as learning and self-improvement, family, the joy of life and giving back to the community. To achieve that mission, we offer an extraordinary breadth and depth of programming in the arts, education, health and wellness, and Jewish life to people of all ages, faiths, races, backgrounds and perspectives.

    As a member of this very special community of communities, I am humbled and inspired by the many remarkable personal and communal journeys I have witnessed here at 92Y:

    About 92Y’s Steve Martin and Deborah Solomon Program

    We know there have been a lot of stories in the media over the last couple of days about our evening at 92Y with Deborah Solomon and Steve Martin and our decision to offer gift certificates to our audience.

    Put simply, we didn’t handle this situation as well as we could have done. 

    We received numerous complaints from audience members about how the interview was conducted and responded quickly by offering the gift certificates.  Although our gesture was made out of respect for our patrons and with the best of intentions, we know now that it came across to many as a criticism of our guests.  We deeply apologize for this. 

    We realize now that offering a refund, especially without consulting with our guests who graciously gave of their time, was disrespectful.  We have learned our lesson, and this will not happen again.

    For 136 years, 92Y has been committed to supporting the arts and providing lectures and programs that educate and entertain.  We deeply value our partnerships with those who help us in our mission.

    Sol Adler
    Executive Director, 92Y

    92Y Video: 92Y Brings Music Back to NYC Public Schools - VOTE TODAY!

    Did you know that 92Y brings music to over 3,200 public school students every year? During October, 92Y is competing in the PepsiRefresh Project to win $50,000. This money will help us bring professional artists into over 25 public schools and then over 3,200 students back to 92Y for concerts by world-class musicians. Without 92Y, most of our partner schools would not be able to teach music and most of our students would not discover the joy of music.

    Vote today and every day between now and October 31 and share this with your friends. Your votes will help 92Y bring music back to NYC schools.

    You can learn more about 92Y’s commitment to the arts here.
