NEW YORK, April 2 (UPI) -- The children's television program "Sesame Street" this month is to feature several segments taped at New York's famed Lincoln Center, producers announced.

Inspired by the classic Sesame Street" song "The People in Your Neighborhood," cast member Murray Monster goes on location to interview real people about their jobs.

The Lincoln Center segments will showcase New York City Ballet, The Juilliard School, the New York Philharmonic, and the Metropolitan Opera.

The first Lincoln Center segment, "People in Your Neighborhood: Ballet Dancer," is to have its television premiere on Thursday's episode of the show, but each segment will also be accessible on "Sesame Street's" YouTube channel in advance of its air date.

"Lincoln Center is the premiere name in arts and arts education and coincidentally a hop, skip, and a jump from our corporate offices," Carol-Lynn Parente, executive producer of "Sesame Street," said in a statement Tuesday. "We are thrilled to introduce the world-renowned talent that is synonymous with Lincoln Center to our 'Sesame Street' audience."
