Carnegie Hall

881 7th Ave.
New York , NY , United States http://www.carnegiehall.org
(212) 247-7800

Commissioned by Andrew Carnegie and designed by New York City architect William Burnet Tuthill, this famed venue opened in 1891. The Italian Renaissance concert hall features three venues: the Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage, Zankel Hall, and Weill Recital Hall. The interior famously consists of a white and gold palette set against a distinctly Florentine Renaissance design. Unlike most structures of its size in New York, Carnegie Hall is constructed entirely from masonry, with no steel supports. Each season the facility presents roughly 250 performances ranging from orchestras to soloists to artists-in-residence. Docent-led tours of the venue are available, and the Rose Museum presents a history of facility through concert programs, photographs, musical manuscripts, and video.
