I played many concerts in Lincoln Center back in High School, I doubt I'll ever play there again. They were quite kind and generous to high school kids who thought they could play good music! I really did enjoy playing and then roaming Columbus Circle with my fellow musicians. It is a very elegant part of New York City, I think. Lincoln Center itself feels like a dreamland, I love the light up steps, the fountain, and the venues. The New York Philharmonic has 10$ rehearsal viewings now and then as well- we went to those quite a bit as well. This is a shot I took last year after my concert band played a show!
