Guide to Carnegie Hall

With the health and safety of the public, our artists, and our staff as our foremost priority, Carnegie Hall has cancelled all events through Sunday, May 10, 2020, in an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19. This includes live events and in-person educational programming presented by the Hall’s Weill Music Institute—whether taking place at Carnegie Hall or an offsite location—and all free Carnegie Hall Citywide performances in venues across New York City. All activities throughout the Resnick Education Wing have also been cancelled.

The revisions were minor, but the Requiem remained a fitting work for a modern metropolis: reverent, mysterious, a little bit distant but a powerful prayer for peace.

Jörg Widmann's somber humor at Carnegie Hall

Jörg Widmann © Richard Termine
In fragments and miniatures, the ensemble pieces were most satisfying, allowing Widmann not to build arguments but define subjects by contrast, showing a quick wit and a flair for suspense.

Biography

Since 1891, New York City's Carnegie Hall has set the international standard for excellence in performance. Its walls have echoed with applause for the world's outstanding classical music artists, as well as the greatest popular musicians and many prominent dancers, authors, social crusaders, and world figures that have appeared on its stages.

Today, the venue remains a pre-eminent concert hall and a vital, active cultural destination for performers and audiences. Carnegie Hall presents more than 170 performances by the world's finest artists each season on its three great stages—the renowned Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage, intimate Weill Recital Hall, and innovative Zankel Hall — with offerings ranging from orchestral concerts, chamber music, and solo recitals to jazz, world, and popular music. In addition to Carnegie Hall’s presentations, the venue is also home to close to 500 independently produced events each year. Complementing its performance activities, Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute creates extensive music education and community programs that serve more than 350,000 people in New York City, across the US, and around the world annually, playing a central role in Carnegie Hall's commitment to making great music accessible to as many people as possible.
