From the Chairman of the Board
It is my pleasure to share with you Carnegie Hall’s 2019–2020 Annual Report. The season chronicled in these pages was one of momentous challenges for our cherished institution, the city we call home, and the country we love. All of us who treasure Carnegie Hall were disheartened to see our three stages and the Resnick Education Wing fall silent in March 2020 as the COVID-19 pandemic forced the first-ever extended closure to the public in our 130-year history.
Amidst these unprecedented circumstances, the Carnegie Hall family has shown exceptional resiliency and strength. Above all else, I wish to express my heartfelt thanks to each of you—our dedicated donors and concertgoers, our stalwart advocates and volunteers, and our peerless Board and staff—for the loyalty you have demonstrated. Collectively, we’ve kept our heads up and our eyes forward, recognizing the uncertainty of the present while remaining committed as ever in our efforts to overcome adversity and build a brighter future through music.
