Lincoln Center, the world’s leading performing arts center, and the New York Philharmonic recently launched a transformative renovation of David Geffen Hall to create an intimate, acoustically excellent concert hall and welcome the community with vibrant and inviting public spaces. At a time when indoor performances were impossible, Lincoln Center and the Philharmonic saw a unique opportunity to accelerate this ambitious project. To seize the moment, they needed the right financial partner — and First Republic was a perfect fit. The Bank has helped fuel the collaboration of two world-class cultural organizations as they deliver an extraordinary new venue to the artists and audiences of New York City, years ahead of schedule.
