Create Your Own Series
Frequently Asked Questions
What does it mean to create your own series?
When you create your own series, you become your own maestro, selecting any type of concert offered throughout Carnegie Hall’s season. Select a minimum of four concerts with the same number of seats for each, and choose from any price range in any of our three halls.
Why should I become a subscriber?
Besides the great music, subscribers have the freedom to exchange tickets, get the first choice of seats, have access to single tickets before the general public, benefit from great discounts, enjoy invitations to exclusive events, and much more.
What is the difference between a curated series and one that I create myself?
A curated series features concerts that are carefully selected by our programming team and packaged together thematically. These concerts are all presented in the same hall. A series that you create yourself gives you the freedom to mix and match genres and halls—even seating locations. So if you want orchestral music, jazz, opera, and klezmer, you can build a series that has all of them.
Here are a few additional differences:
- Subscribers to curated series have access to seats before any are made available to subscribers who wish to create their own series. They also have the same seat for each concert and have the first option to renew each season.
- Curated series subscribers have the option to request a seat upgrade, if seats are available. Those requests are fulfilled before tickets become available to subscribers who create their own series.
- In addition, subscribers to curated series can renew at lower prices than those available to subscribers who create their own series.
When can I start creating my own series?
Subscribers to Carnegie Hall’s 2019–2020 and/or 2020–2021 seasons, as well as current members, have early access to create their own series beginning May 18. A special presale for Bank of America cardholders starts May 27. Everyone else can begin creating their own series on June 1.

Can I buy tickets to any Carnegie Hall event as part of my series?
The entire 2020–2021 Carnegie Hall Presents season is available to you, with the exception of galas and Weill Music Institute events. All events are subject to availability.
Will I have the same seats for each event?
Since creating your own series gives you access to events in all three halls at any available price level, you will not have the same seats at each event. If you are interested in having the same seats for all performances, please take a look at our many curated series. Seating is subject to availability.
Do I have to buy the same number of tickets for each event in my series?
Yes, you will have to buy the same number of tickets for each event, but your seats can be in any available section.
Do I receive any discount on the price of tickets?
Yes! You receive the same discount as any first-time subscriber.
Is there a per ticket handling fee if I create my own series?
No, there is only the standard subscription handling fee of $15. Since the per ticket handling fee for single tickets is $7, that means you save at least $13 when you create your own series instead of buying single tickets.
What subscriber benefits can I expect?
You get them all, including no-fee ticket exchanges, special offers, invitations to artist receptions, and more. Here’s a snapshot of your subscriber benefits.
