Carnegie Hall

Apr 03rd 2014

When someone asks ‘How Do You Get to Carnegie Hall?’ The answer is practice, practice, and more practice. That is unless you want to marvel at the spectacular performances from the audience! Arguably the world’s most famous music hall, it’s the place where dreams come true for performers and where audience members are inspired and delighted by the talents before them.

Completed in the spring of 1891, the Hall immediately became a wildly popular success and has maintained its prominence with more than 46,000 performances within the past 123 years.

Its three stages have welcomed many of the world’s greatest artists and speakers including:

  • Louis Armstrong
  • Frank Sinatra
  • Judy Garland
  • The Beatles – New York Debut
  • Jay Z
  • Elton John
  • Ella Fitzgerald
  • Theodore Roosevelt
  • Winston Churchill
  • Mark Twain
  • Booker T. Washington
  • Woodrow Wilson
  • Yo-Yo Ma
  • Gustav Mahler
  • Liza Minnelli
  • Bob Dylan
  • Vladimir Horowitz
  • Maria Callas
  • Leopold Stokowski
  • Chicago Symphony Orchestra

One of the most frequent performers is the New York Philharmonic, which has performed more than 400 concerts in the hall. Even some of the musicians in the subway stations in New York have performed at the legendary venue (the screening process in New York to perform in subways is quite vigorous).

Carnegie Hall’s success attributed to the wide variety of events its hosts including; concerts, educational presentations, graduations, festivals, political speeches, television and radio productions auditions and more. Due to its success Carnegie Hall has played an integral part in the American music industry for more than a century.

Located just south of Central Park at 57th Street and 7th Avenue it’s walking distance from New York’s Hotel Pennsylvania. Be sure to check for concerts and events while you are visiting New York at www.carnegiehall.org.
