It's great. It's huge. It's the best in the world.
Plus it has four not only one wall ;-)
I leave it there......

The way it's build creates nearly perfect audio quality. Charming to the eye the interieur is dipped in cream white, red and gold. The look from top is as steep as breathtaking. You won't regret but come back.

Carnegie Hall is like a temple. there is so much history that surrounds one, you have to enter feeling this. thank goodness it survived the wrecking ball and new generations each year can experience this glorious hall. all who came before, and now and in the future.

The Vienna Philharmonic was outstanding. However, Carnegie Hall itself is definitely showing its age. It really needs to be restored. It is a beautiful venue, ...but the walls are grungy...even the walls behind the orchestra performers are dirty. The seats have holes and worn spots in the velvet. The intricate woodwork has been painted over so many times it's losing its definition. It is in desperate need of a renovation. Don't let this wonder fall into ruin please. EDIT: wife and I sat in the Blavatnik Family First Tier box 7 seats 1 & 2. See More

The space is beautiful, however the seats were terribly uncomfortable with zero leg room, especially for a 3 hour show, the view from our seats was partially obstructed so we couldn't see half of the stage, and we spent $30 for 3 items at the snack counter.

Attended the Bach (St. John Passion) as presented by Ted Sperling and MasterVoices on Feb. 9. Accoustics ultra crisp; attendance sparse due to snow-day. But wha...t stood out, beyond the absolute professionalism of the soloists, chorus and baroque orchestra was--much to my surprise--the recitative of the tenor whose almost impassioned forlorness gave the text's subject--the betrayal, scourging and cruxifixion of Christ--a strange elan. It was magical, not because I'm a believer, because I'm not, but because each man's death is our own. No wonder our old religion held us spellbound for so many centuries!

I also would like to mention the one Carnegie Hall ritual I never neglect, i.e. taking a nice pocketful of Ricola from the foyer dispensers. I wonder how many other Carnegie-goers there are who feel this same leave-taking ritual is a must--like the final note--before going out into the cold air? Harder and harder in New York to find these thoughtful freebies.

I attended the Keith Jarrett solo piano recital 2/15. My seat was 4 rows in from the back of the balcony. The line of site and sound quality were amazing. Usher...s are very attentive to any distractions which are quickly and politely addressed. Rest rooms and refreshment booths are well serviced. Seats are tight, check your coat. See More

Super upset by customer service today. (Spoke to Joe and Jamie.) Well, more by the policies you have - I never got my tickets in the mail - and now you can't email me a PDF of MY tickets - OR give me a refund?! There will be two empty seats and it's a real shame. Ridiculous!

Possibly the greatest sounding music space in the world coupled with the most appreciative and sophisticated New York audiences. Fully stocked bar for intermission fun. Great place to bring a date.

Simply amazing to think of all the emotions, hopes, dreams, lifetime achievements, memories, careers, and lives that have been affected by and in this historical venue. Truly an historical treasure and blessed to experience this amazing venue.

The best part about my experience was that the first 15 minutes of the conductor being on stage was devoted to his vocality about his American values being liberal and democratic.
And, how he hoped to survive this dark time.

What an incredible venue to listen to music!!!! The staff is not overly friendly. Nevertheless, a wonderful venue to listen to music.

I was part of a 270 voice Prestonwood choir that sang with Michael W Smith on 2/12/17. The majesty of this space was surpassed only by acoustics that have not been replicated. It seems impossible that this theatre was built with 1800's technology.

I thought the venue was beautiful but I didn't like how you charge full price for a 2 year old child that is not going to sit in his own seat. Also, being military the Carnegie Hall website said their was a military discount but the ticket agent didn't honor that.

No matter what you believe, experiencing a performance at Carnegie Hall is a spiritual experience in one way or another. ♥
I had the chance to perform on the Carnegie Hall stage once and it's an experience I'll never forget. It was an HONOR!

Performing Randall Thompson's "The Testsment of Freedom," words written by Thomas Jefferson, at Carnegie Hall, Dr. Lee Nelson conducting, with 275 men singing, a part of The Glory of Freedom Concert on Presidents' Day weekend in front of a completely sold-out house was an experience never to be forgotten, always cherished, and long hoped for! What an honor to have sung in that iconic, historic, beloved venue. See More

Acoustic perfection. Dress circle seats are wonderful for great view of the hall and performance. Loved it!

Excellent experience and program, delightful acoustic but I must agree with some other comments, leg room is very very tight, making seating quite uncomfortable...

Heard St. Luke's Orchestra do Brahms' Requiem. Glorious performance, but 2nd Tier boxes were designed for four people-- they're now putting in six. No knee room at all; very painful.

As part of the La Serenissima festival, cultural institutions from New York City held 29 events related to the Venetian Republic’s arts and culture. They included everything from roundtable discussions, art exhibitions, lectures, theater performances, and concerts, and included partnerships with 15 organizations and five digital partners.

"The music created the illusion of human voices, the purest representation of breath, and time seemed to expand and contract with the spectrum of sounds." —The Boston Globe on the world premiere of Sofia Gubaidulina’s Triple Concerto for Violin, Cello, and Bayan, co-commissioned by Carnegie Hall. You can hear the work, alongside Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 7, “Leningrad,” this Tuesday, February 28 at Carnegie Hall.

Andris Nelsons led a powerful, affecting evening of Russian music that also included Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 7, “Leningrad.”

Monteverdi’s opera “L’incoronazione di Poppea” tells a tale of ancient Roman political machinations, adultery, and murder, in which there is no true protagonist. It was performed in concert by Concerto Italiano with an all-star cast, conducted by Rinaldo Alessandrini. The title role was sung by soprano Miah Persson, who returns to Carnegie Hall with baritone Florian Boesch and pianist Malcolm Martineau on March 22 for an all-Schumann recital in Zankel Hall.

Have you heard of the “Vienna sound?” The distinct sound of the Vienna Philharmonic / Wiener Philharmoniker sets it apart from many other orchestras of today. Hear this distinct sound on Friday, February 24 when Franz Welser-Möst leads the Vienna Philharmonic in Schubert’s Overture to “Die Zauberharfe,” Strauss’s “Ein Heldenleben,” and the US premiere of René Staar’s “Time Recycling.”

Ask conductors and musicians, and they’ll single out the Vienna Philharmonic for its unique style, one that has persisted as other orchestras sound more alike. What’s its secret?

As part of his exploration of the “late style,” pianist Jonathan Biss led workshops for young artists on the late solo works of Beethoven, Brahms, and Schubert in the Resnick Education Wing. Here, Biss works with participant Ning Zhou. Biss returns to Zankel Hall tomorrow, Thursday, February 23, for a performance with the Brentano Quartet.
