Annual Gala


Thank you for joining us!

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our 2019 Annual Gala featuring a special performance of Evita, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s iconic rock-opera, on Wednesday, November 13, 2019.

We were delighted to honor Board Co-Chair Richard E. Witten with the 2019 Fiorello H. La Guardia Award for distinguished service to New York City Center.

The Gala performance was followed by a festive dinner with the cast at 583 Park Avenue, where guests enjoyed music from Mr. Chris Norton and his band. To view photos from the evening, please click here.

All funds raised at the Annual Gala will allow City Center to make the very best of the performing arts accessible to the widest possible audience by subsidizing education programs and affordable tickets throughout the year.

A special thank you to our 2019 Annual Gala leadership:
