Mission Statement

The Tisch Center for the Arts of the 92nd Street Y will produce and present an ongoing series of programs of distinction and innovation for adults and children in all the lively arts.

The center will present artists of national and international repute, as well as local and emerging artists, whose work is consistent with the center's standards of excellence. The center will embrace the performing arts of diverse cultures.

The center's activities will serve as a bridge between the arts and the other intellectual and educational programs offered by the Y and its centers. The quality and breadth of the performing arts offerings, in conjunction with the stature of the artists, created works, and programs
presented will strengthen the 92nd Street Y's historic role and reputation as a major cultural institution.


Education is among the top priorities of the center. All center programs, wherever possible and appropriate, will include a public humanities program component (such as program notes, a pre-concert lecture, a symposium, a conference, etc.) that illuminates the material
being presented.

The public humanities programming component is a vital tool for drawing audiences into the heart of an arts presentation. This is particularly important for younger audiences whose exposure to more traditional forms
of the arts may be limited.

Educational activities will emanate from both within and without the center. Initiatives at one center will be a catalyst for program ideas in other centers whenever possible and appropriate.

The center will present and promote programs related to Jewish culture and experiences that are consistent with the center's standards of quality and have a reasonable ability to attract an audience. The center will work closely with the center for Jewish Life to implement any such

The center will make a concerted effort to bring in younger and diverse audiences, through contextual and thematic programming, targeted marketing, and programming that is particularly appealing to such

The center will continue to produce and present offerings in all of its current areas of programming, which include classical music, lyric theater, jazz, and literary readings.
