The Eagles performed a set at New York City's Beacon Theatre on Thursday night (November 15th) to benefit New York University's Steinhardt Department of Music. Eagles co-founder Glenn Frey has been helping teach a songwriting class at the school, where his daughter also attends. The band played a truncated hour-long set with the school's string ensemble featuring such classics as "The Long Run," "Lyin' Eyes," "In The City," "Take It To The Limit," "I Can't Tell You Why," "Witchy Woman," and "Hotel California."

Prior to the Eagles' set, three of the class's students performed original material. Before the show, Frey said in an interview: "Their enthusiasm is contagious. It'll be interesting to see where my next batch of songs comes from." Frey revealed that the Eagles' upcoming career spanning documentary will premiere at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, with the band deciding on how to celebrate their 40th anniversary during their 41st anniversary next year: "We're going to set that time aside to talk about how we think 2013 is going to unfold for us."
