We were singing in a vocal concert at Carnegie Hall. We were so impressed with the acoustics in this beautiful hall

I'd like now to continue with my reviews about New York. Since, we ( my wife and I ) have been, back in 2005, in the hotel Pennsylvania, we normally explored most that region around the hotel, when we didn't use the subway to get to some distant points of such megalopolis as it is New York. In such walking,... More

I wasn't planning on watching anything but ended up doing so. The outside and the hall alone are completely worth the visit. It's all very beautiful and impressive. Having the chance to see the inside and actually enjoying a concert makes the experience even more impressive and incredible.

Excellent venue for an event. The decor and architecture are incredible and lend an air of elegance to the evening. The acoustics are very good around the entirety. The staff is very friendly and quick to offer a cough drop. Just remember, the only way to get here is practice!

We traveled with family to watch our niece perform in the Middle School Honors Performance event at Carnegie Hall. It was our first time at Carnegie Hall, and we were more than pleased with the experience. I will say we were disappointed that the stated dress code was not enforced, nor was the ability to photograph the event. We understood... More

Ok I just got back from performing at Carnegie with a opera group and it is the nicest theatre I have every entered in Manhattan. The dressing rooms are beautiful with a modern feel but still keeping the molding to add that carnegie character. The actual theatre is breath taking the molding with gold accent is just gorgeous. As far... More

I recently attended a classical concert here. I usually attend events in small venues or at the Met. I guess I never quite found something I wanted to hear here before. The space is beautiful, a one of a kind, even in NY. As cliche as it sounds, there really isn't a bad seat in the house, the view of... More

We joined the 1-hour visit to the Carnegie Hall and were led by an enthusiastic and proficient elder lady. The acoustics are most impressive. The same is true for the hall's simple but elegant design and the whole story of Andrew Carnegie's vision to build it and Isaac Stern's successful struggle to save it from demolition. We enjoyed the photo... More
