It’s why they work hard to make a difference in each community nationwide—partnering with arts organizations and programs in hundreds of cities in every region of the United States.
In addition to hundreds of programs across the United States, Macy’s partnered with the Summer HD Festival for the Metropolitan Opera in New York City in 2010 which screened 10 of the Met’s Live in HD performances in Lincoln Plaza. Macy’s Herald Square store in New York City dedicated a display window to the Met for the month to promote the Summer HD Festival. Allowing both Macy's and the Metropolitan Opera to reach new audiences.
