• Medal of Excellence: Honoring Sanford I. Weill

    Sanford I. Weill received the Carnegie Hall Medal of Excellence at a gala benefit on Thursday, May 28, 2015, on the Weill Terrace and Terrace Room. The award recognizes Mr. Weill's outstanding leadership as a passionate philanthropist, exceptional businessman, and dedicated supporter of the arts who has worked tirelessly for more than three decades as a Carnegie Hall trustee to support and expand the scope of the Hall and its activities.

    It also honors Mr. Weill in recognition of his transition earlier this year from his longtime role as Chairman of Carnegie Hall’s Board of Trustees to his new post as President, succeeding Isaac Stern as only the second person to hold the this title since Carnegie Hall was established as a non-profit in 1960.
