Carnegie Hall Presents

The Originals

Fresh, daring, always mesmerizing—these are the qualities of a true original, and this series has performers who fit the bill. The audience is invited to sing along in a concert of Stevie Wonder’s songs led by acclaimed composer, music director, and producer Ray Chew. There’s also protest songs with pop sensation Snarky Puppy and folk-rock icon David Crosby, and the legendary Philip Glass Ensemble performs one of that composer's most groundbreaking early works.
