Carnegie Hall Information

Carnegie Hall - Concert Venue | Theater in New York.

The legendary Carnegie Hall in New York City is one of the world’s most famous and historic music venues for both classic and contemporary music. Built in 1891 by Andrew Carnegie, the hall consists of three distinct performance venues, The Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage, Zenkel Hall and Weill Recital Hall.

The Stern Auditorium has a 2,800-person capacity spread over five levels in the high-ceilinged space. Being the largest of the three halls, it is the main auditorium, and was home to the New York Philharmonic until 1962 when they moved to Lincoln Center.

Zenkel Hall holds 599 spectators, and is the most recently renovated space, though it was originally the first to open. Weill Recital Hall is the most intimate of the three halls with a 268-person capacity, and often hosts new musicians making their debut. Other events at Weill Recital Hall include small concerts, recitals, and master classes. Because of its petite size, this hall often hosts new musicians making their debut.

All three halls have their own concession areas that serve food and beverages prior to performances and during intermission. There have been many historic music events at Carnegie Hall throughout the years such as the premiere of Gershwin’s Concerto in F, performances by Leonard Bernstein, Billie Holiday, Duke Ellington, and Ike and Tina Turner, and even concerts by the Beatles and the Beach Boys. Parking is not available, so the venue advises taking public transportation. Although, as the saying goes, the best way to get to Carnegie Hall…is practice, practice, practice!

Carnegie Hall User Reviews

Average rating:
The most respectable classical performance stage
Lana G. May 28, 2013
The stage in Carnegie Hall is known in most countries. Musicians from everywhere wish to be invited to perform there. If someone performed on that stage, he considers to be well accomplished and respected. I think any member of the audience can hear beautiful sound in any part of the building.
Worth a visit

I have never actually seen a performance at Carnegie Hall; however, you can tour it and if you love music, history, and architecture, then it is definitely worth a visit for you. I don't think you can tour it year-round, only during the off-season. There is a lot to see and do in New York but this is a beautiful piece of history, even if you are not into classical/chamber music. The venue itself is massive and gorgeous. On the tour, you can learn about all the famous musicians who have performed there since the late 1800's, including a lot of Jazz greats who performed there over the years. The history of the place is incredible, and the structure itself is breathtaking.
Cross This Off Your Musical Bucket List!

I had the privilege of catching The Books at Carnegie Hall's new and smaller Zankel Hall where Carnegie Hall hosts their pop, jazz, and world music concerts. This space has great modern design with smart wood paneling covering the walls and the acoustics are perhaps the best I've ever experienced. Having walked around the hall during their set I was impressed to find that there wasn't a bad seat in the house. Regardless of what kind of show you're seeing or what hall you're in, a show at Carnegie Hall is one of those things you must check off your musical bucket list. Tickets are expensive and the crowd looks decidedly Upper West Side so be sure to dust off that suit or gown hanging in your closet.
Gorgeous

I've only been to Carnegie Hall once, but it was amazing. It is so historical and pristine, it almost doesn't matter what you go see there. Tickets are on the higher end - but what do you expect? It's Carnegie Hall. If you want to really make a night of it, go to some place fabulous around Central Park, and depending on your shoes, you can walk from Central Park down to the venue. You have to dress up to really pay your respect to this structure, and how quintessentially New York it is. Enjoy every moment....you're getting your culture fill in New York City! Life is good.
