NYC ‘s Carnegie Hall – New York City

Carnegie Hall

881 7th Avenue, New York, NY 10019, USA

Since 1891 this hall has been host to quite some list of individual performers, musicians and musical groups. From the Vienna and the Berlin Philharmonic to Yo-Yo Ma and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, virtually all the greats have been here at one point or another. There are also piano recitals, choral evenings and even revivals of great musicals by the likes of Cole Porter, Irving Berlin & George and Ira Gershwin.

The Hall has a seating capacity of 2,804.

Many years ago, I had the opportunity of being at perhaps my first of three operas ever at Carnegie Hall. I can’t say I remember the name, nor that I particularly enjoyed it since I’m not a big fan of the opera, though I very much enjoyed the Aria, especially when she appeared from no where and walked down the aisle singing her heart out. Anyhow, I wish instead that I’d been to one of their other performances. Some of which exist as part of the JVC Jazz festival here in NY. Then there are those concerts by the likes of Ricky Martin, Madonna, Gladys Knight, Diana Ross and hey! Even Jerry Seinfeld!

Also on hand is the Carnegie Hall Archives and the Rose Museum. The Archives is comprised of nearly a complete set of programs from the inaugural week of concerts in 1891, thousands of promotional fliers, poster, files, photographs, drawings, paintings and even audio and video recordings. At the Rose Museum you’ll find a number of exhibits which are available free to the public as well as a permanent collection.

The Rose Museum is located at 154 West 57th Street, Weill Recital Hall entrance, on the second floor.
