• Studio Towers Renovation Project

    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.

  • "For 120 years, Carnegie Hall has been known as one of the world's greatest concert halls and as a premier destination for the world's finest artists. With the creation of these newly expanded facilities, we seek to build on Carnegie Hall's amazing history, ensuring that our building continues to reinvent itself to meet the needs of the 21st century, remaining a place as important to the future of music as it has been to the past."—Clive Gillinson, Executive and Artistic Director
  • 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 educators.

    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.
