About David Geffen Hall
The hall was originally called Philharmonic Hall when it opened in 1962. The New York Philharmonic moved in from its former home at Carnegie Hall.
The hall was renamed Avery Fisher Hall in 1973. The Fisher family later allowed Lincoln Center to resell the naming rights to finance a long-planned renovation.
It was renamed David Geffen Hall in 2015. David Geffen is a renowned music and film producer and a philanthropist originally from Brooklyn. He co-founded Asylum Records in 1971. Geffen is a partner of movie studio DreamWorks SKG with Steven Spielberg and Jeffrey Katzenberg.
The renovated New David Geffen Hall reopened in 2022. Wu Tsai Theater is the main hall. It’s named for the Taiwanese Canadian owners of the Alibaba Group and the Brooklyn Nets.
The Hall reopened with Caribbean and Latin American cleansing traditions dedicated to Oyá, the Yoruba orisha of rebirth, and jazz dedicated to the people of San Juan Hill that Lincoln Center displaced (as seen in West Side Story). The Hall reopened with better acoustics, engaging seating, and more inclusive and adventurous programming. It’s a great renovation.
