Since it opened in 1891, New York's Carnegie Hall has set the international standard for musical excellence as the aspirational destination for the world's finest artists. An honor roll of music-making artists representing the finest of every genre has filled Carnegie Hall throughout the years.
Carnegie Hall today presents a wide range of performances each season on its three stages—the renowned Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage (2,804 seats), intimate Weill Recital Hall (268 seats), and innovative Zankel Hall (599 seats)—including concert series curated by acclaimed artists and composers; citywide festivals featuring collaborations with leading New York City cultural institutions; orchestral performances, chamber music, new music concerts, and 65recitals; and the best in jazz, world, and popular music.
Many concerts each season are heard by listeners worldwide via the Carnegie Hall Live radio and digital broadcast series, and selected concerts have been webcast on medici.tv. In addition to Carnegie Hall's presentations, the venue is also home to more than 500 independently produced events each year.
Complementing these performance activities, Carnegie Hall's Weill Music Institute creates extensive music education and social impact programs that annually serve more than 600,000 people in the New York City area, nationally, and internationally.
