The Studio Towers Renovation Project will enable Carnegie Hall to
transform its facilities, ensuring that the Hall remains the premier
international destination for the world's greatest artists in the 21st
century and beyond.
The renovations fully support Carnegie Hall's
non-profit mission—making great music accessible to as many people as
possible. The project will create new inspirational spaces dedicated to
music education within existing upper floors of the building and also
fully refurbish Carnegie Hall's backstage areas, upgrading and
reconfiguring them to achieve maximum efficiency.
A new Education Wing will include ensemble rooms, practice rooms, and
teaching studios, as well as a state-of-the-art home for Carnegie Hall's
Archives. Adjacent to the Education Wing will be a new outdoor Roof
Terrace—a gathering place for visitors to the building. These new
facilities will ultimately provide a wonderful setting in which to
inspire a lifelong love of music in young musicians, students, and
Carnegie Hall's education and community programs currently engage more
than 170,000 people around the world annually, including tens of
thousands of New York City public school students.
Construction work will be completed over multiple years, coordinated
with Carnegie Hall's performance and rehearsal schedules. Carnegie
Hall's three auditoriums will not be touched by the renovations, and
performance calendars will be largely unaffected in future seasons.
