Since 1891, Carnegie Hall at 7th and 57th in new York City has been the gold standard for any musician serious about their career. To play Carnegie Hall was to have “made it”. Instant bragging rights.
This venerable concert venue offers three performance spaces:
- Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage
- Zankel Hall
- Weill Recital Hall
Carnegie Hall provides a selection of add-ons, including outreach and educational programs, the Rose Museum (Carnegie Hall has a long and remarkable history), a delightful gift shop at the Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage venue, and convenient spots to buy a drink at intermissions. It is a National Historic Landmark.
The Hall’s mission is: “to present extraordinary music and musicians on the three stages of this legendary hall.” It hosts guided tours, school programs, and a historical archive. Some Carnegie Hall productions are staged at other venues in New York, some of those outdoors.
Presenting a wide range of musical styles and talents, new and established, Carnegie Hall’s excellent acoustics make music all the more joyful. When in New York City, you will find something on stage at Carnegie Hall. Memberships are available.
