Practice isn't the only way to get the Carnegie Hall

We went to hear Stephanie Blythe and Warren Jones on stage at Carnegie Hall. This lady has a voice that you really have to hear to believe. What a fantastic performance !!

I shudder when I think this building almost succumbed to a wrecking ball. The main auditorium has been the site of performances by the greatest singers and musicians. My husband and I have enjoyed countless concerts there and most recently attended a song recital by Stephanie Blythe Friday night and a concert by the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra on Sunday afternoon....

Great programming. Great acoustics. Beautiful. And a nightmare to attend a concert there. The following is not a review, just the facts. Write your own review. Went to a concert last night, starting time 8 PM. They let people in the building at 7:35 PM. First piece was Beethoven. Seats next to me empty. Elderly Japanese couple who came after... More

This was an amazing performance. For every song performed there was a Broadway Star singing the lead. When we booked the tickets we had no idea that this would be the case. Included in the show was Queen Latifah and Renee Fleming. The whole show was breathtaking. It was heartwarming to learn more about the POPS outreach program...they even had... More

I took the tour almost by coincidence, was on my way to the MoMa and out of the sub station there it was, had an extra hour so why not, let's see what all the fuzz is about. What a surprise, one of my favorite tours in NYC. If you go please do the tour with Florence: to summarize it,... More

Carnegie Hall is one of the old school music experiences in the city. We stayed just across from Carnegie in The Salisbury so walked past every morning. Whilst we were in the city there were plenty of Culinary schools and musical schools graduating using the hall as a venue which certainly seemed exciting.

I attended a scintillating evening of music and song wrapped together as Monteverdi's L"Orfeo a few nights ago at this brilliant concert hall. Another memorable evening at a great venue -I don't understand how the rating cannot be a solid 5 circles from everyone here - what could you possibly find wrong with Carnegie Hall? Acoustics that rival the best... More

We took the tour of Carnegie Hall and found it really interesting. The guide Jerry was informative and had a great passion for the hall. We found out a great deal about the hall and the man himself, would recommend this if you are interested in old buildings not just music halls

My first time in the famed Carnegie Hall was an occasion I'll never forget. Audra McDonald's concert in that building was incredible, the hall is magnificent and acoustics were the best.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
