Live Tweeting Lincoln Center’s Marvin Hamlisch Tribute


Since 2011, I have been managing the social media for Live From Lincoln Center, the performing arts program airing on PBS. On New Year’s Eve, Live From Lincoln Center broadcast the New York Philharmonic’s tribute to composer Marvin Hamlisch. The all-star concert included performers from Broadway, television, and film. Below is a collection of my live tweeting throughout the broadcast.
