Tune in for an enchanting hour on NJ PBS, New Jersey’s public television station.

We’ve planned another one-of-a-kind, made-especially-for-you virtual Spotlight Gala @ Home.

Expect an exhilarating night of performances as Broadway legend Kelli O’Hara hosts Perfect Harmony, NJPAC’s Spotlight Gala @ Home celebration of the power of voices raised in song. This year’s Gala will be beamed right into your living room with a host of spectacular performances by a cappella and singing stars including Bobby McFerrin, Manhattan Transfer, Take 6, Naturally 7 and Under the Streetlamp.

 Founders Award 2021 Honorees 

We will honor the vision and philanthropy of Toby and Leon G. Cooperman, and the entire Cooperman Family, with our highest honor, the Founders Award, acknowledging their contributions in the fields of medicine, education and the performing arts, and their founding gift toward the construction of the new Cooperman Family Arts Education and Community Center on the NJPAC campus, scheduled to open in 2024.

Join our Gala 2021 co-chairs — Mindy A. Cohen, Community Leader and Philanthropist and Nina Mitchell Wells, Former Secretary of State, New Jersey — for this special celebration of NJPAC and the power of the arts.
