Kaufman Music Center will present longtime Executive Director Lydia Kontos with the Lifetime Achievement Award at our 2018 Gala on Monday, May 14, 2018 at Guastavino’s in New York City.

The Gala will feature performances by outstanding guest artists, including: living legends of the flute, Sir James Galway and Lady Jeanne Galway, both renowned for gracing stages throughout the world with eloquence and virtuosity; and acclaimed soprano Ailyn Pérez, hailed by the New York Times as a performer who “commands the stage” and “a major soprano.”
