This year's annual Spring Family Fair will celebrate the Big Top. The Ben Jam troupe returns to flip the traditional French circus on its head, as the animals tame the tamers. Conductor, composer, and Juilliard Pre-College faculty member Adam Glaser will transport families to the middle of a three-ring circus during The Composer's Paintbrush: Carnivals and Festivals, the third installment of his acclaimed multimedia musical series. Circus-related crafts, costumes, and clowning workshops will complete this afternoon of family fun.

A complex of buildings in the heart of New York City, The Morgan Library & Museum began as the private library of financier Pierpont Morgan (1837–1913), one of the preeminent collectors and cultural benefactors in the United States. As early as 1890 Morgan had begun to assemble a collection of illuminated, literary, and historical manuscripts, early printed books, and old master drawings and prints.
