Experience and celebrate one of the most iconic decades in U.S. history at “The ‘60s: The Years That Changed America,” by Carnegie Hall.

The New York citywide festival explores the turbulent spirit of the decade through the lens of arts and culture, including music’s role in inspiring social change. Kicking off Jan. 14 and running through March 24, the festival is Carnegie’s largest to date, including more than 50 events at more than 35 leading cultural institutions across New York City.

The festival is an amalgamation of music, dance, exhibitions, talks, films and family programming — all focused on the decade that saw the likes of music legends like David Crosby, Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen and Tom Rush, and significant social movements for civil, voting, student and women rights as well as anti-Vietnam War movements.

Learn about counterculture in the 1960s and 70s in the new exhibition “You Say You Want a Revolution: Remembering the Sixties” at The New York Public Library’s Stephen A. Schwarzman Building at 42nd Street and Fifth Avenue; see memorabilia from maverick artists including Allen Ginsberg, Jimi Hendrix and Elaine Summers in the “Artifacts of Change” exhibit at The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts.

The New-York Historical Society presents “The Vietnam War 1945–1975,” exploring the war’s causes, conduct and consequences on the battlefront and U.S. home front, while the Apollo Theater presents “Soundtrack ’63,” a multimedia live music performance showcasing the artistic retrospective of the civil rights movement.

This is not an event you want to miss. Visit the festival website for a full lineup of events.

Guide to Celebrating the Holidays Alone

For others, the holidays are spent alone because of a circumstance. For instance, many study abroad students spent their holidays alone, away from family due to the cost it takes to go back home and then return to the host country.
