2021 Spring Gala

Honoring CMS Board Member John L. Lindsey

for his inspiring philanthropy and civic leadership supporting the cultural arts


Celebrate CMS, our Honoree John L. Lindsey, and join us for a wonderful step forward toward the return of live performance. Enjoy a socially distanced champagne reception and in-person concert on the Lincoln Center campus (weather permitting). If you prefer, you can join the festivities from the comfort of your home via livestream. Donors may opt in to receive a catered meal by NYC's top chefs or a special gift box delivered to your home.

Proceeds from the Gala will in part support the extraordinary initiatives CMS achieved this season in the midst of the pandemic. To connect with our loyal and new audiences while our halls are closed, CMS produced an array of resources including digital concert series featuring archival recordings along with newly recorded performances, thought-provoking lectures with CMS artists, new interviews with leading composers, lively music tutorials for children, and much more. We are pleased to employ 182 CMS artists with our extensive new programming and reimbursements for canceled concerts. Looking ahead, CMS will build off this momentum to produce a one-of-a-kind season in 2021-2022, returning to our signature programming, to the extent possible, while advancing some of the most successful initiatives from this year.

We look forward to welcoming you!!
