The world’s first-call Cuban rumbero, Pedrito Martinez played Carnegie Hall’s Zankel Hall on February 19, 2016. It was once-in-a-lifetime concert. Pedrito invited the audience to dance with him on stage. Unforgettable!


Carnegie Hall was built in 1891 by Scottish-American industrialist Andrew Carnegie (1835-1919). Carnegie made his fortune with Pittsburgh’s Carnegie Steel which later became U.S. Steel. At life’s end, he became a major philanthropist.

Carnegie Hall has three stages:

  1. Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage, the main hall with 2,804 seats
  2. Zankel Hall, a modern 599-seat performance hall
  3. Weill Recital Hall, a 268-seat performance hall

A few Carnegie Hall concerts have a broad cultural impact. The 1962 Bossa Nova concert popularized the style of Brazilian Jazz that is still the world’s most popular music after the Beatles.

Carnegie Hall has not had a resident company since the New York Philharmonic moved to Lincoln Center in 1962. The hall manages very well with its own productions and many rentals. It has a very good marketing department.
