2020 – 2021 Gala



During these challenging times, HB Studio has taken drastic steps to continue to ensure the safety, health, and well-being of our artistic community. We continue to adhere to NYC mandates and best practices as we join with our fellow New Yorkers in a community-wide effort to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus.

With so much still uncertain, especially for indoor gathering spaces, we have made the difficult decision to postpone our 75th Anniversary celebration, the HB DIAMOND JUBILEE GALA, until further notice.

The actions we take now to protect the most vulnerable among us and safeguard one another’s health and safety are primary. Looking to the future in solidarity and with hope, we look forward to gathering with you soon to celebrate the HB DIAMOND JUBILEE GALA! 

Let’s set our sights on a joyful gathering in the future that will bring us all safely together again. We look forward to sharing new updates with you soon.

With warm regards and care,
