This grand old building gives you a buzz as soon as you come through the front doors! You are struck by the 1900 period feeling, just as if you are back in the good old Vaudeville days! The main Theatre has lost none of it's old features and serves up a treat!

Beautiful place for a concert. Just loved it. The sound was great. You don't get a bad seat anywhere. A tour is pretty informative as wel.

What a thrill to be in the audience at this excellent concert. Reading the history of the building it was lucky to remain standing in the sixties. Beautiful auditorium, and the NY joke of how do you get to CH, the answer is practice ...practice.. practice

We attended the Casting Crowns performance. This was our first visit. It did not disappoint. I was worried after reading reviews that seats were not comfortable. The seats were very comfortable. Yes, we are tall so the seats are very close to the next row, but this you find at most theaters. The sound, the music, the entire evening was... More

This will be my first trip to New York City! My Grandson is a member of the UW Madison Wind Ensemble and am anxious to hear them play here!! I have read some of the reviews and hopefully won't get seating in the areas where one can't see the stage very well. I would love to do a tour but... More

Attending this concert in the beautiful, history rich Carnegie Hall was a highlight of our short stay in Manhattan. We were mesmerized by the amazing performance of the St. Luke's Orchestra. We had great seats and were especially impressed by the concert pianist Stephen Hough who performed Dvorak's Piano Concerto. Very enjoyable evening, perfect for a very cold night in... More

It may have the big name, but Carnegie Hall suffers from a lack of comfort and views of the stage. Sound was good, concert was good, but for two hours, it was difficult to enjoy in uncomfortable seats where I constantly had to shift to see the stage. I'm all for history, but update the audience areas, please. No food... More

We saw the Vienna Boys Choir perform their Christmas Special. This was a single performance only show. Unaided by any microphones, the acoustics of Carnegie Hall were so good, we could hear every note, of every song, perfectly. Definitely an experience you should have on your To Do List. God Bless

My Mom and I went to "Joy: An Irish Christmas Concert!" On Dec. 17, 2014. We had a Wonderful time. I enjoyed the Irish Dancing, New Christmas Songs and Violins! It was Wonderful being surrounded by our Brothers and Sisters of all Cultures giving Praise and Glory to God.
