A Message from Carnegie Hall’s Executive and Artistic Director
Since 1891, Carnegie Hall has been an inspiring beacon, sharing the most amazing music and musicians from all around the world, and providing joy, solace, and hope, especially through difficult times.
Unprecedented events have abruptly changed our world in recent days. Before addressing any other issues, we were clear that our first responsibility must be to focus on the safety and health of our audiences, artists, staff, students, educators, aspiring professional musicians, and community leaders at large. The spirit of this community is rooted in the very walls and Carnegie steel of our storied building, and extends throughout New York City, across the United States, and around the globe.
While we all look forward to reconnecting and enjoying live music together as soon as possible, I want to share a few ways that you can enjoy music and access resources from Carnegie Hall right now. And rest assured this is just the beginning. We remain committed to our core mission and values, delivering the emotional sustenance, beauty, inspiration, stimulus, and relief that music can provide to all of us in times of immense duress.
Here are some of the ways you can engage with Carnegie Hall:
- Join the conversation. Find us on social media and look out for our emails. We’ll be sharing music and learning resources, starting dialogues, and connecting.
- Donate. If you are able, we could use your help now. Every donation of any size at this incredibly difficult time is so important for the survival and future health of this unique institution.
- Subscribe. Our 2020–2021 season kicks off in October and is available to explore online now. Subscribers help sustain our concert seasons for generations to come.
- Listen. Whether you’re maximizing work-from-home productivity with the right musical soundtrack or need a break from the news, tune in to on-demand listening of our Carnegie Hall Live series with WQXR.
- Share. Help us share music and education resources created by Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute with friends, family members, aspiring musicians, parents, educators, and community leaders to ensure that programs and resources reach those in need. Right now, our newly digitized Musical Explorers curriculum for students K–2 is available for educators practicing remote learning or parents based at home with young children.
