Van Bramer Welcomes Lincoln Center Local



New York City Council Majority Leader Jimmy Van Bramer welcomed the Lincoln Center Local 2015 summer series to the Broadway Library branch in Astoria. The weekly performances span the borough’s neighborhood Queens Library branches and feature free world-class concerts encompassing a wide range of eclectic musical styles, traditions and cultures. Since taking office, Councilman Van Bramer has supported Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts’ partnership with the Queens Library which brings free international music, dance, and theater to neighborhoods throughout Queens during the summer. This performance series presents hour-long programs which showcase world-class artists in a variety of disciplines – classical and cultural music, jazz, Broadway and opera, modern and world dance, theater and spoken word. In this photo, Van Bramer is joined by members of Zikrayat, which performed a set evoking the atmosphere of mid-20th century Cairo and included a mix of belly dance numbers from the “Golden Age” of Egyptian cinema, introspective and ecstatic classical tarab music, and upbeat, popular shaabi songs.
