Target Free Thursdays

Target Free Thursdays provide free public performances, Thursday nights at 7:30, unless otherwise noted, every Thursday of the year at the David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center, Frieda and Roy Furman Stage, making the vast spectrum of the performing arts available to the broadest possible audience.

Curated by Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Inc., Target® Free Thursdays performances feature national and international touring artists as well as local artists from around the New York metropolitan area. The series also features artists from Lincoln Center’s resident organizations including The Juilliard School, Jazz at Lincoln Center, and The Chamber Music Society, among others, along with artists curated by community-based partners. Target Free Thursdays represent a diverse cross-section of musical genres, including pop, Latin, rock, soul, country, spoken word, jazz, and world music, as well as classical and new music. Select performances will also feature live music for social dancing including swing, salsa, and tango.

Take advantage of these opportunities to immerse yourself in New York’s vibrant arts scene, try something new, and experience the unparalleled artistic offerings of Lincoln Center and its community.
