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:
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.
Monday – Saturday: 11 am – 6 pm
Sunday: 12 – 6 pm
Daily: 8 am – 8 pm
Carnegie Hall is generally dark in August and September.
