When Eva Bornstein, the executive director of the Lehman Center for the Performing Arts, began planning the 2013-14 season more than 36 months ago, she aimed to attract an array of acts as diverse and sophisticated as the population inhabiting the Bronx.

“I wanted our shows to mirror the people who live and work here,” Ms. Bornstein said.

But she did not limit herself to variety — Ms. Bornstein wanted only the best performers.

“I worked very hard to make this season memorable,” Ms. Bornstein said.  “I want to make sure that we make a strong and positive impression on all of our guests who attend our performances this year.”

The schedule is robust and sundry from start to finish.

The Lehman Center opens its 33rd season on Sept. 28, with pianist and  Latin Jazz bandleader Eddie Palmieri — a nine-time Grammy Award winner — and closes on May 10, with a performance by guirarist and vocalist Jose Feliciano.

Other highlights include the Moscow Classical Ballet’s performance of Peter Ilyitch Tschaikovsky’s Christmas tale The Nutcracker, The Bronx debut of the Haifa Symphony Orchestra of Israel, who will play Beethoven’s “Symphony No. 7,” the return by popular demand of the Soweto Gospel Choir and the Tango Fire Company of Buenos Aires.

Ticket prices for selected shows are as low as $10 for children 12-years-old and younger and $25 for adults. Students, senior citizens, Lehman alumni and CUNY faculty and staff receive a $5 markdown for some events.  Discount ticket packages are available for the purchase of three or more performances.

 

The Lehman Center for the Performing Arts is located on the campus of Lehman College at 250 Bedford Park Blvd. W.
