The Archives ensures the Hall's legacy is preserved for future generations and secures new materials developed by Carnegie Hall in support of its artistic and educational programs. Digital initiatives aim to provide broader access to the archival materials—including photographs, program books, flyers, posters, correspondence, and recordings—to support the Hall's mission and share our rich history with the widest possible audience. Beginning in 2012, Carnegie Hall's Archives began an ongoing initiative to digitize and make accessible most of the Hall's historic collections.
Step on to Carnegie Hall’s stage alongside internationally renowned performers, take a behind-the-scenes tour of the iconic landmark building, or browse engaging multimedia exhibits.
Carnegie Hall makes available its performance history from 1891 through the end of the 2015–2016 season as linked open data, donated to the public domain via a Creative Commons Zero (CC0) license.
We are excited to participate in a community of archiving, preservation, and programming experts who share their code and documentation freely online and openly collaborate through an organizational GitHub account for Carnegie Hall.
