Bowers Program clarinetist Sebastian Manz has been honored as one of Lincoln Center's 2020 Emerging Artists. He will perform in a gala celebration on Wednesday, February 26 at Alice Tully Hall. Many of the Emerging Artists will perform and all will be in attendance.
Recognizing diverse and exceptional talents from across all disciplines represented on the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts campus, each recipient was nominated by the artistic leadership of one of Lincoln Center’s eleven resident organizations. “The arts are fundamental to our world, and it is Lincoln Center’s responsibility to support the voices of diverse, fearless, and extraordinary artists,” said Henry Timms, President and CEO of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. “The Awards for Emerging Artists unite our campus organizations to celebrate those creatives who imagine big and take risks.”
CMS Co-Artistic Director Wu Han said of the honoree: “[Sebastian] demonstrates outstanding artistry with a great deal of energy, large technical capacity, and sensitivity as a collaborator. We are certain that he will contribute substantially to the artistic community and will be a significant voice throughout his career.”
Sebastian next performs with CMS on Thursday, March 12 in the New Milestones program Expanded Pitches: Schoenberg's String Trio. Learn more about the program and get your tickets here.
