Carnegie Hall is one of the world’s legendary concert halls. It presents Classical, Jazz and Pop concerts on three stages.
- Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage is the 2,804-seat main hall.
- Zankel Hall is a modern 599-seat performance hall.
- Weill Recital Hall is a classic 268-seat performance hall.
Carnegie Hall Citywide presents a variety of Latin music at venues across New York City.
The curation is extraordinary, and not only in Classical Music. It’s surprising how well the programmers understand what’s happening on the street. We learn from them too. Carnegie Hall could comfortably retreat into European art music, but instead is elevating Mother Africa. Check out this timeline of African American Music. carnegiehall.org
By the way, do you know the way to Carnegie Hall? Practice, practice, practice. Many artists practice an entire year for a one-night Carnegie Hall performance.
Thank you Carnegie Hall for sponsoring New York Latin Culture Magazine!

Carnegie Hall is One of the World’s Great Music Organizations
The hall was built in 1891 by Scottish-American industrialist Andrew Carnegie (1835-1919). He made his fortune in Pittsburgh with Carnegie Steel which later became U.S. Steel. At life’s end, Carnegie became a major philanthropist.
The hall has not had a resident company since the New York Philharmonic moved to Lincoln Center in 1962. The hall manages very well with rentals and its own productions. The curating and marketing are world-class.
Some concerts have a broad cultural impact. The 1962 Bossa Nova concert helped popularize the style of Brazilian Samba Jazz that is still the world’s most popular music after the Beatles. Salsa Romántica singer Gilberto Santa Rosa was the first Puerto Rican to play the Hall.
