• Hall Rental Information

    A jewel in the crown of New York City, Carnegie Hall has come to symbolize the pinnacle of musical achievement and the heights of artistic endeavor. Its auditoriums have hosted legendary artists: Gustav Mahler, Leonard Bernstein, Maria Callas, Frank Sinatra, Vladimir Horowitz, Duke Ellington, Jascha Heifetz, and the Rolling Stones, to name just a few. It has also been the site of speeches, political rallies, debates, and religious services, making it a forum for the expression of ideas of the day.

    The Hall underwent a major renovation in 1986 and was fitted with expanded backstage space in 1991. In 2003, Zankel Hall was opened as a 599-seat concert venue, adding a contemporary setting that is consistent with the overall elegance of Carnegie Hall.
