Young Leadership Council

The Young Leadership Council

The mission of the TBHC’s Young Leadership Council (YLC) is to increase awareness and support of TBHC among individuals in the 22-49 age group. The YLC is a subset The Brooklyn Hospital Foundation and encourages the involvement of young professionals by accommodating busy work/life schedules.

YLC members serve as ambassadors to the community. They have opportunities to meet with select TBHC medical professionals and administrators to share what they and their peers look for in choosing a medical center or physician. They promote the Hospital through their own series of special events. And they help raise funds for designated projects.  Additionally, YLC members are invited to attend select Trustee and Foundation meetings. Each member is asked to give or raise a minimum of $1,000 per year.

Singer-songwriter Sufjan Stevens puts his expressive voice and exuberant orchestrations in the service of unabashed wonder at the world. At BAM, he has serenaded both the heavens (Planetarium, 2013 Winter/Spring) and the highway (The BQE, 2007 Next Wave) and, on his albums, everything from the Chinese zodiac to the state of Illinois.

In this BAM commissioned work, Stevens turns his gaze to the rodeo, in all its bull-riding, calf-roping, and barrel racing glory. Based on slow-motion footage shot by sibling filmmakers Aaron and Alex Craig at the 2013 Pendleton Round-Up in Oregon—and featuring piano and percussion performed by new music ensemble Yarn/Wire—Round-Upis a musical and cinematic portrait of a classic American tradition.
