“At Flushing Town Hall, there is always something new to discover, something to enjoy, and something to amaze,” said Flushing Town Hall Executive and Artistic Director Ellen Kodadek. “This season will be no exception, when we present a range of opportunities to experience magnificent performances from artists from near and far, inspiring exhibitions, invigorating dance lessons, and appetizing culinary events!”
Councilman Peter Koo credited the Flushing Town Hall for revitalizing the arts and culture scene in Flushing with its programming, which not only includes Asian performances but art from around the globe.
“This is our Lincoln Center, this is our Carnegie Hall,” Koo said. “Flushing’s quality of life is improving. Before we were known as a place to just eat dinner, now everyone can come and eat and then watch a performance.”
Continuing from last season, Flushing Town Hall will hold its popular Teen Access Program, which grants free entry to performances for 13- to 19-year-olds. This program encourages young people to engage with the magnificent arts opportunities in their community.
State Senator Toby Ann Stavisky noted the vast programming Flushing Town Hall offers, from a Monthly Jazz Jam, the Moth StorySLAM, the Diwali Festival, an interactive arts workshop and photo exhibitions to family performances.
“It appeals to all audiences, it’s like a universal language where everybody understands it. You don’t have to speak Mandarin to understand it,” Stavisky said. “So much that is good about Queens and Flushing takes place here.”
