Festival Description

Winter 2011 will debut the first Tully Scope Festival, a new festival at Lincoln Center, which this year takes place from February 22 through March 18, 2011. Ms. Jane Moss, who directs the Festival, said, “Tully Scope builds on the success of Alice Tully Hall’s Opening Nights Festival, the celebration of an architectural milestone for Lincoln Center that not only reinvigorated the campus, but also inspired extraordinary new collaborations with diverse artists. The dramatically transformed hall, complemented by the welcoming ambience of its public spaces, has become a versatile partner and key component in the expansion of Lincoln Center’s programming.” In its debut season, the Tully Scope Festival offers a dynamic spectrum of distinctive musical presentations spanning centuries, cultures, and genres through unique and multi-faceted performances demonstrating Alice Tully Hall’s new adaptability as a venue.
