1. Miri Ben-Ari featuring Scarface & Anthony Hamilton - “Sunshine to the Rain”

    "If you want to get jazzed up or relax at home, you put on Miri Ben-Ari!" - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton

    If you haven’t heard of hip-hop violinist Miri Ben-Ari, it’s probably time to get acquainted. She studied with Isaac Stern in Tel Aviv, before immigrating to the US where she developed her signature style. She has collaborated with Jay-Z, Wyclef Jean, Alicia Keys and Wynton Marsalis, and shared a Grammy Award with Kanye West for “Jesus Walks.”

    See her at 92Y in March when she talks with Tablet editor-in-chief Alana Newhouse.

  2. If you don’t get the print version of the New York Times, here’s a view of the front page of today’s Arts section with a story on literary lions, many who are appearing at 92Y this fall, including Michael Chabon, Zadie Smith, Salman Rushdie, Tom Wolfe, Junot Diaz, Barbara Kingsolver, Bob Woodward and Jeffrey Toobin.

    And if you turn a couple pages, you’ll see a full-page ad announcing our new season of talks, readings and concerts. Big names like Geoffrey Rush (tonight!), Stephen Colbert, Jack Black, Alicia Keys, Diane von Furstenberg, Cyndi Lauper, Wyclef Jean, Lang Lang, András Schiff and much more. Many events have discounted pricing for anyone 35 and under.
