News   PHOTO CALL: Bill Pullman Hosts New York City Arts in Education Roundtable Benefit Honoring MTC's David Shookoff
 
David Shookhoff, director of education at Manhattan Theatre Club, was honored by the New York City Arts in Education Roundtable at a benefit held on June 22. The cocktail event was hosted by Tony nominee Bill Pullman, a longtime friend of Shookhoff.

The evening featured a specially composed "Fanfare for David" performed by an ensemble from the New York Philharmonic; a performance by Renée Elise Goldsberry; a performance by the Frank Sinatra School of Arts Chamber Singers (Heidi Best, director), and a jazz combo throughout the evening.

The New York City Arts in Education Roundtable is the service organization for cultural groups that provide education programs in the city's schools and communities. Founded in 1992 by Shookhoff and a small group of colleagues, the organization has increased in size and importance. Today, its 120 members include major institutions like Carnegie Hall, the Metropolitan Opera Guild, and Manhattan Theatre Club as well as small community-based organizations in all five boroughs. The roundtable shares information, provides professional development, and advocates for arts education with policy makers and the general public.

Here's a look at the benefit:
